"Based on the characteristic, evolutionary, 'powerfull' shapes of Asian trees I tried to 're-use' these organic and fluent curved 'tree-trunk' shapes into a table serie. I wanted to give my new design proposal for Linteloo, an organic look, in contrast with the existing geometrical designs of tables, that you see nowadays. Besides the organic top view, I created a more geometric side view by shaping the legs of the base in a more 'linear' way. What fascinated me, is how beautiful these two different design 'languages' can mix and blend into a homogeneous design that looks very natural in it's appearance. Ultimately, in my opinion, it justifies the creation of this unique piece as it really has become a 'one of a kind' table".

A large slice of a log provided the inspiration for this design; the annual rings serve, as it were, as a type of 'pattern'. Thanks to a computer program specially designed for a milling machine, the designer has succeeded in bestowing a modern interpretation upon the characteristic annual rings found in wood. "By mimicking tree's rings three-dimensionally, Roderick Vos uses the incidence of light to create a surprising effect - one of imperfect circles in asymmetric harmony, amplifying their own natural beauty."

The table series ISOLA by Roderick Vos for Linteloo is available in two heights; a dining table, (height 76cm, length 220 or 240 cm) and two low tables (height 32cm, length 170 or 220 cm). All tables are decorated with a 'log pattern'. The 'smoked' dark brown oak tables are finished with natural oil.
