An Anomaly in the Design World
Marcel's work excites, provokes, and polarises, but never fails to surprise for its ingenuity, daring and singular quest to uplift the human spirit and entertain.
Marcel is bringing the human touch back to design by ushering in design’s ‘new age’ in which designer, craftsperson and user are reunited. In his process, Marcel defies design dogma; instead, focusing on holistic solutions rather than the technocratic. In Marcel’s universe, the coldness of industrialism is replaced by the poetry, fantasy and romance of different ages, vividly brought to life in the contemporary moment.
Masters of the Golden Age
Marcel Wanders has made it his mission to “create an environment of love, live with passion and make our most exciting dreams come true.” This philosophy is most apparent in Rijks, Masters of the Golden Age, a book born out of Marcel’s profound admiration for the incredible artistic and intellectual legacy that is the Gallery of Honour in the Rijksmuseum.
