During his studies at the predecessor of the Design Academy, Wim Bos has increasingly emphasized on the use of colour and structure for textile applications in the interior. After graduating, he started working in the textile industry where he expanded his expertise. Since 2006 he has been running the CarpetSign studio as a colourist and R&D specialist and is co-founder of a large part of the Carpet Sign collection. He is a development partner for various (celebrated) graduates of the Design Academy and external designers. Pagoda is his first autonomous work.
