Henk Vos

The art direction for the Teaching Hotel was provided by designer Henk Vos who also designed the Kruisherenhotel in Maastricht.

Henk Vos (1939) studied interior design at the Academy of Fine Art in Rotterdam. From 1963 to 2006, with his family, he led a leading interior design agency, ‘Vos Interieur Maupertuus’ in Groningen. One important division of Vos Interieur is the interior design bureau that carries out projects for private and corporate clients in the Netherlands and abroad. Clients include Sanoma/VNU, Achmea, Agis, Essent, the Kruisherenhotel and TNT.

Apart from this, Henk is also a successful industrial designer for various well-known brands such as Linteloo, Hugues Chevalier and the Dutch Gelderland Group. His first sofa, the 4800, that he designed for the Dutch Gelderland Group in 1983 is still one of the most successful models in their collection. The 4800 has been included in the collection of the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. What sets Henk Vos’ designs apart are their simple shapes and uncluttered lines. ‘Better empty than ugly’ is the motto of this designer whose designs endure not only because of their timeless beauty but also because of their use of high-quality materials.
