About the Designer
Marcel Wanders Marcel Wanders Netherlands (1963 - )

Marcel Wanders grew up in Boxtel, the Netherlands, and graduated cum laude from the School of the Arts Arnhem in 1988. Marcel Wanders' fame started with his iconic Knotted Chair, which he produced for Droog Design in 1996. He is now ubiquitous, designing for the biggest European contemporary design manufacturers like BandB Italia, Bisazza, Poliform, Moroso, Flos, Boffi, Cappellini, Droog Design and Moooi of which he is also art director and co-owner. Founded in 2000, Moooi has grown into an internationally renowned design label. Additionally, Marcel Wanders works on architectural and interior design projects and recently turned his attention to consumer home appliances. Marcel was the editor of the International Design Yearbook 2005. In the same year, together with Chef Peter Lute, he established the extraordinary LUTE SUITES hospitality-concept, the first "all over city suites" hotel in the world. He also designed the interior of Blits, a new restaurant in Rotterdam and the interior of the restaurant 'Thor' at the Hotel on Rivington in New York including bar, lounge and private club. Marcel is the first and among the most important designers of Droog design. He was a juror for various prizes like the Rotterdam Design Prize (for which his own products were nominated several times) and the Kho Liang Ie prize. He lectured at SFMoMA, Limn, the Design Academy, Nike, IDFA, FutureDesignDays and has taught at various design academies in the Netherlands and abroad. Various designs of Marcel Wanders have been selected for the most important design collections and exhibitions in the world, like the Museum of Modern Art in New York and San Francisco, the VandA Museum in London, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, Museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam, the Central Museum in Utrecht, Museum of Decorative Arts Copenhagen and various Droog Design exhibitions. Coverage on Marcel has been published in all leading design magazines and newspapers such as Domus, Interni, Blueprint, Design Report, Frame, I.D. magazine, Abitare, Wallpaper, Nylon, Elle decoration, Icon, Esquire, the International Herald Tribune, Washington Post, the Financial Times, the New York Times and Business Week. The table set Dressed was designed by Marcel Wanders. Traditionally, the rules would require that decoration be applied in the most important and most visible areas of the object. Wanders, on the other hand, applies it to secluded areas, a little out of sight, sometimes even in areas that aren't normally visible at all, so much so that we could call it a sort of introverted decoration. In this way, even though he uses a language of signs that is very rich and complex, a bit flowery, a little baroque, Wanders manages to maintain a certain level of overall elegance and lightness.

The quality of porcelain is best reflected through its fine and delicate properties, a quality that is not celebrated when using a mould. Marcel Wanders has developed a technique to produce porcelain objects without the use of plaster moulds. A natural sponge is taken and dipped in a fluid porcelain clay slip. The clay impregnates the sponge. Once the sponge has dried, the sponge is fired within a Kiln. The sponge is burnt away and the perfect porcelain replica of the sponge remains. An intelligent manufacturing process that has the ability to show the intricate qualities of porcelain clay.

Manufacturer Details
Since April 2001, Moooi has inspired and seduced the world with sparkling and innovative designs within the interior industry. Besides the designs of Marcel Wanders, Moooi also has other designs from both national and internationally recognised designers, such as Jurgen Bey, Bertjan Pot, Jasper Morrisson, Ross Lovegrove, Studio Job and many more. The interior designs are selected by Marcel Wanders himself. The reasons for this diverge considerably. Sometimes an item has super-functionality, sometimes a design is brilliantly creative and sometimes dazzling. But occasionally, what we all like the most is when all this can be found at the same time.

Moooi wants to preserve the balance in its collection between unique objects, icons and functional products for everyday use... the silent friends.
