Simone Vingerhoets-Ziesmann
Executive Vice President at Roset USA Corporation


Simone Vingerhoets-Ziesmann joined Roset USA in September 2017 as Executive Vice President for the Americas. Roset USA is the subsidiary servicing the North- and Latin American markets for the renowned French furniture and luxury lifestyle brand Ligne Roset, known for its artful collaborations with both established and up-and-coming talents in contemporary design.

Increasing both consumer sales as well as contract sales across North and Latin America during her tenure with Ligne Roset, Simone has also elevated the brand perception in the US through various high-profile brand and marketing activities. Some highlights include: Dynamic Expansion art and design installation by artist Liz Collins in collaboration with Pollack and Sunbrella Contract; special exhibition on Philippe Nigro’s body of work in collaboration with Mobilier National; a partnership with GCE Lab School supporting socially responsible young citizens and hands-on learning experiences; Ligne 102 transformative modular installation made entirely of cork and designed by Bernard Dubois; the Wanted Design show under the philosophy “Design is about telling a story and Ottoman is the story of a land where indoor and outdoor permanently co-exist“ with French Designer Noe Duchaufour-Lawrence supported by the creation of an outdoor scenography inside a gallery; and Design Miami “Transformation” presentation in partnership with Directed Art Modern and world-class artists Troy Simmons, Sean Mick, Lukasz Bilinski, Bego Santiago and Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec. And coming in 2023 she will lead a multi-city exhibition to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the iconic Togo design, complete with historic elements, special editions, and an experiential podcast corner to learn more.

Passionate about design, Simone has been a founding member in her role at Artek of BeOriginal Americas, a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting intellectual property and counteracting design piracy while investing in design’s future and continues to be a member of the Be Original Americas board on behalf of Ligne Roset. She is an avid marathon runner and triathlete, frequently seen on the podiums winning age group award
