DESIGN INSPIRATION

 

2006 RODERICK VOS

 

For his series of ‘Log’ tables, Roderick Vos found inspiration in the growth
rings of trees. Whenever we see a mightly oak felled, its rings tell a story of
times past, of rainy seasons and dry seasons, of natural wealth and poverty—
they tell a story that spans generations. By using CNC milling, Roderick has
enhanced the powerful nature of those stories, which are ‘illustrated’ by the
wood’s characteristic variations in colour.

Roderick Vos

Dutch designer Roderick Vos (1965) graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 1990, upon which he and his wife Claire, a textile designer, upped sticks and went to live in Surabaya, Indonesia. There, Roderick further developed his interest in Asian culture and its designs, an interest he was quite literally born with, being part Asian himself. Once back ‘home’ in the Netherlands, Roderick and Claire established ‘Studio Roderick Vos’ in beautiful Heusden Vesting, in 1999. In his design aesthetics, Roderick feels less connected with post-modernism than with the Platonic philosophy that every soul desires the good, the true and the beautiful. So, that is what he tries to achieve. ‘I want to make people happy with beautifully useful pieces. Objects that exude aesthetic pleasure. Strong shapes that feel beautiful, good and true.’ We at Linteloo feel he succeeds in his achievements, each and every time.
