Coffee tables / side tables


by Studio Roderick Vos

If there is one thing that defines Japanese aesthetics, it is that unique combination of seemingly simple lines and intricate craftsmanship. Dutch designer Roderick Vos took this centuries-old adage on board for his ‘San’ coffee tables. The oak veneer shows the saw marks—another typically Japanese design feature, celebrating the material and the artisans transforming it. ‘San’ is Japanese for ‘three’ and the three-dimensionality of these two-tier tables is underlined by the angle at which the top is set over the lower shelf. Inspired by the art of origami (paper folding), these angles allow you to create a wide range of interesting shapes, using two—or more—‘San’ tables.

Studio Roderick Vos

Roderick Vos, (Groningen, The Netherlands, 1965) started his studies in Industrial Design at Design Academy Eindhoven in 1984. In 1987, working as a trainee, he moved to Japan for 6 months. Being partly Asian himself, this particular period evidently had a large impact on his personal interest in Asian Culture and its works.

Together with his partner Claire Vos, he graduated in 1990 from the Design Academy and moved to Indonesia, Surabaya to develop their knowledge of rattan furniture and textile production. In 1999 they officially started their design office ‘Studio Roderick Vos’, now based in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. Several of their works were acquired by prestigious museums, such as Stedelijk Amsterdam and Museum of Arts & Design New York.
