Roderick Vos (Groningen, The Netherlands 5 Febr. ’65) started his study of Industrial Design at the currently known “Design Academy” in Eindhoven The Netherlands in 1984. At ’87 he moves to Japan for 8 months, where he finds an excellent tutor in GK Industrial Associates/Tokyo, founded by Kenji Ekuan. Partly Asian himself, this particular period gave evidently a larger impact for his personal interest in Asian Culture and it’s products. In 1990 he graduates at the Design Academy in Eindhoven (division men & living), and starts together with his partner Claire Vos, an industrial designer too, his design office ‘Studio Roderick Vos’ , based in s’Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands.
