Roderick Vos (Groningen, The Netherlands, 1965) started his studies in Industrial Design at Eindhoven’s “Design Academy” in 1984. In 1987, he moved to Japan for 8 months, where he found an excellent tutor at GK Industrial Associates/Tokyo, founded by Kenji Ekuan. In 1987, he worked as a trainee for 4 months at Studio Ingo Maurer in Munich.
Roderick Vos being partly Asian himself, this particular period evidently had a large impact on his personal interest in Asian Culture and its works.
In 1990, he graduated from the “Design Academy” (Men & Living division), and started working with his partner Claire Vos Teeuwen (Tegelen, 1965), an industrial designer too. Together they created the design office and showroom ‘Studio Roderick Vos’ based in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands.
Several of his works were acquired by prestigious museums, such as Stedelijk Amsterdam and Design & Arts Museum NY.
