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 B&B 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 V&A 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.
Since April 2001, Moooi has inspired and seduced the world with sparkling and innovative designs within the interior industry. The founders Marcel Wanders and Casper Vissers decided to change the already existing brand Wanders Wonders into Moooi, (meaning beautiful in their native language, Dutch) with one extra ‘o’ because it is extra beautiful. The reinforcing strengths of both men are still sublime; Marcel, the obstinate designer with a keen eye for business and Casper, the marketeer with a keen eye for design.
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 every day use... the silent friends.
We all have the need to feel special, to feel unique and important and to know that our life makes a difference. We are different than others and we want the world to know this. “We are all individuals”. We also feel the need to be connected, to belong to something that is larger than ourselves, to recognise ourselves in others, we want to be part of the team and we want to show this to others. “We are all family”. Apparently these are two contradictory challenges. No one statement being more important than the next but together they make us very happy and It is the responsibility of Moooi to understand both challenges and to produce one answer.
