Marcel Wanders became worldwide recognized with his iconic Knotter Chair which was produced for Drogs Design, in 1996.
This chair was a remarkable work that resulted from the combination of high tech materials with low tech production methods. That exquisite furniture piece was entitled as “little miracle”.
Marcel Wanders works with a wide variety of international clients such as Flos, Alessi, Puma, MAC Cosmetics, Swarovski, B&B Italia, and so many other notorious brands.
Therefore, many Wanders designs have been selected for design collections and exhibitions and features in prestigious magazines. Consequently, in 2006 he was elected International Designer of the Year by Elle Décor.
Wanders’ work and style are unquestionable. Through a perfect mix of innovation, historical tradition and a unique style that relies on his creativity and passion, he creates outstanding works that blow out the most skeptical minds.
So it’s impossible that his work goes unnoticed. As the New York Times described him as the Lady Gaga of the design world. Considering his own words, “I’m interested in designing things that will excite people and make them feel alive.”
His passion for art and design and his distinctive funny way of seeing this world is what makes him so iconic and the reason behind the extraordinary success.
Finally, the perfect example of his unmatched personality and vision is the “Happy Hour” Chandelier. Notably, that brings a spectacular sparkle to any celebration and leaves a long-lasting impression. In other words that inspires with a mist feeling of sophistication and sexiness. Is there any more perfect match than champagne, art and design?
