Marcel Wanders breaks down the coldness of industrialism, bringing poetry, fantasy and romanticism from different eras into contemporary life.
Born in 1963 in the Netherlands, he grew up in Boxtel and graduated in 1988 from the School of the Arts in Arnhem. In 1995 he opened his own studio in Amsterdam and the following year became famous with the iconic Knotted Chair, designed for Droog Design. In 2000 he founded Moooi, now a globally acclaimed brand. His designs are imbued with "humanity", and bring the human touch back into design. Many of his works have been part of the world's most important museums and design exhibitions.
