Bart Vos is preceded by at least three generations of furniture makers. Talk about design being part of your genetic makeup: his father was renowned designer Henk Vos, and one of his brothers is equally renowned designer Roderick Vos.
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 — 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. His awareness of and interest in ‘the real world’ outside the confines of a showroom or studio shines through in his stunning yet utterly usable designs.
