Marcel Wanders was born in Boxtel, Netherlands in 1963. He studied at the School of the Arts in Arnhem and graduated cum laude in 1988. in 1995 he opened a studio in Amsterdam, Netherlands. A year later, Wanders created his most iconic and acclaimed design piece - The Knotted Chair, which was produced by Droog Design in 1996. The chair combined innovative and highly technical materials and industrial methods with handmade craftmanship - his talent was quickly recognised and he soon became a star in design houses around the world.

He moved on to find the highly successful design label Moooi, which he co-founded with fellow designer Casper Vissers in 2001 - his studio in Amsterdam now has over 50 designers and is internationally recognized as one of the best design houses in the world. He has been comissioned over the years by prestigous design brands from all over including Alessi, Bisazza, Cappellini, Flos, Puma, MAC Cosmetics, B&B Italia, Moroso, and Target.

Wanders has built his profile as a profilic and highly talented product and interior designer and art director. His philosophy on design is to “create an environment of love, live with passion and make our most exciting dreams come true.” His work has been described as exciting, super provocative and polarising with it's main aim to uplift the human spirit, and entertain. Marcel believes in reuniting designer, craftman and user into one and to focus on a holistic statement. His collection is often exclusive, usually bold, but always based on his belief that design is sprouted from love.
