The Sicilian




Mario Puzo’s novel may have been based on the short and violent life of a
true Sicilian ‘don’, Roderick Vos’ ‘The Sicilian’ is much more user-friendly.
Robust? Yes. Striking? Certainly. But most of all this is a table to gather
around, with different sizes accommodating any family, Italian or otherwise.
This table will definitely become an heirloom of the future.

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.
