Roderick Vos is a Dutch designer who opened his own design studio in the Netherlands.
According to Platon every soul desires the good, the true and the beautiful especially artists and artisans ! These are absolute and eternal qualities that arise from a single source. So anything that is beautiful is naturally good and true, too.
Is this idealistic ? Naive ? I admit, we have just stepped into the 21st century. Nowadays everything seems so relative, and Platonic idealism so distant. But I feel a greater kinship with his ancient philosophies than with our last century's postmodernistic view of the world. Everyone is not right, and everything is not equal. I don't want to be constantly entertained, or to entertain others. I want to make you happy with beautifully useful pieces. Objects that exude aesthetic pleasure. Strong shapes that feel beautiful, good and true. Such sensations are nothing to be ashamed of.
