DESIGN INSPIRATION

2013 BART VOS

‘Keep it simple’: with the ‘Model D’, Bart Vos brought the concept of a chair
back to its bare bones, using as little material as possible. The end result is
a light and airy, inviting and comfortable chair, that will easily adapt to any
environment, whilst still holding its own in quality and looks. Originally
designed in aluminium, today’s ‘Model D’ comes in tactile wood.

Bart Vos

Talk about design being part of your genetic makeup: his father is renowned designer Henk Vos, one of his brothers is equally renowned designer Roderick Vos. As a matter of fact, Bart Vos is preceded by no less than three generations of furniture makers. It was only a couple of years since Bart graduated from the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague, when his father asked him—aged just 24 at the time—to design the ground-breaking Maupertuus building for the Vos emporium in Groningen. Today, Bart is Vos Interieur’s creative director, responsible for interior design projects in the Netherlands and abroad. And he regularly turns his hand to furniture, for various international brands, including Linteloo. His awareness of and interest in ‘the real world’, outside the confines of a showroom or studio, shine through in his designs: extremely beautiful yet utterly useable.
