Marcel Wanders

Born in Boxtel, the Netherlands, in 1963, he developed his experience in the design field first in the sphere of Droog Design, after with Wanders Wonders brand, and nowadays with Moooi. He collaborates with Authentics, Flos, Magis, Mandarina Duck, and Salviati. Impetuous and always enthusiastic, he creates delicate and light objects as though used technology was a second nature for human race. Marcel Wanders believes it is important to learn about materials, to know what they can do, how they are produced and how they are processed: in this way he creates his project, a synthesis of handcraft and industrial technology.

“I want to make work come alive by participation. There is a sense of love in a product - a kind of energy... (I think I’m responsible for creating an energy).I try with my designs to make a connection to real life and to contribute to the lives of people. ‘Real’ products should not be done by half measures.”
