Marcel Wanders (1963 - )

"Luxury starts where functionality ends and where the true value is personal and so has no price or reason."

Dutch designer Marcel Wanders was born in 1963, and studied at the Arnhem School of the Arts in the Netherlands. His first major design was the Knotted chair, which he developed for Droog Design in 1996, however he has since produced a plethora of stylish, modern pieces for which he has become famous worldwide.

He has collaborated with some of the world’s largest design firms, such as Flos and B&B Italia, and owns and runs the firm Moooi, a globally recognised design brand. Wanders has exhibited at some of the world’s largest museums, and continues to work, teach and exhibit today.
