San Coffee Table
The essence of Japanese aesthetics is beautifully encapsulated by Roderick Vos’ San coffee tables for Linteloo. A creation that marries the elegance of simple lines with the intricate mastery of craftsmanship.
Crafted with oak veneer that proudly showcases the saw marks, these tables celebrate the material and the artisans who transform it.
San translates to ‘three’ in Japanese, which speaks to the tables’ intriguing three-dimensional form. The top’s angle over the lower shelf is a testament to the meticulous thought and inspiration behind the design. Inspired by the art of origami, these angles allow you to create captivating shapes by combining two or more San tables, showcasing the artistry of folding and arranging.
International study and experience has deeply influenced the design work of Roderick Vos. Born in the Netherlands in 1965, he spent much of his early career living, designing, and drawing inspiration from abroad, including spending time in Munich and Tokyo before living in Indonesia from 1990-1996. After returning to Groningen, Netherlands he put his design efforts in creative endeavors for the Maupertuus furniture store. Since 2004 he has been concentrating his work on product design alongside Claire Teenwen, his wife, at the Roderick Vos Studio. Vos believes that being involved in the manufacturing process is just as key to a design as the initial sketches.
