In 1995 he opened his studio in Amsterdam, quickly coming to worldwide attention in 1996 for his iconic Knotted Chair, which paired high-tech materials with ‘low-tech’ production methods. Today Marcel is a prolific product and interior designer and Art Director, with over 1700 projects for private clients and premium brands such as Magis, Alessi, Bisazza, KLM, Flos, Swarovski, Puma and Magis.

Regarded by many as an anomaly in the design world, Marcel has made it his mission to “create an environment of love, live with passion and make our most exciting dreams come true”. His work excites, provokes and polarises, but never fails to surprise due to its ingenuity, daring and singular quest to uplift the human spirit and entertain.

In his designs, Marcel often mixes innovative materials and techniques with references to well-known historical styles and archetypes, so users can easily connect to the pieces, enjoying them for a long time and in doing so create sustainable surroundings.

Marcel Wanders have, among many things, created Troy chair which is available in various design. If you would like to read more about the designer, or see more of his work, press here.
