by Roderick Vos
Sometimes you see something so simple—and so brilliant—that you wonder ‘why did nobody else think of this?’ In the modular ‘Broadway’ sofa, by Dutch designer Roderick Vos, the transitions from the front to the side and the side to the back are not square or rounded, but chamfered at a 45 degree angle. Thanks to its ‘plump’ but straightforward shape, ‘Broadway’ is the perfect combination of organic and cubist—a powerful silhouette, underlined by a thick cord.

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.
