Marcel Wanders (Boxtel, 1963) graduated from the Faculty of 3D Design at the Arnhem College of Art in 1988. According to Wanders, “design is a form of poetry”.
He rewrote design history with his Knotted Chair. The design won the Rotterdam Design Award in 1997. It was the jumping board for working with a large number of famous design labels, both nationally and internationally.
Together with Casper Vissers and Hans Lensvelt, Wanders founded the label MOOOI. The label produces designs from both established designers and young talent.
