Cappellini & Marcel Wanders studio: products
A long journey, a rented van, loads of prototypes combining technology and craftsmanship. That's how the long collaboration between Giulio Cappellini and Marcel Wanders began in 1996. They had met a few weeks earlier in Amsterdam, after Cappellini, impressed by the young Dutch designer's prototype of the Knotted Chair, wanted to meet him.
The chair has become a contemporary classic that never ceases to amaze. The first of many products created by Wanders for Cappellini.
The creations of the Marcel Wanders studio, a synthesis of industrial and artisanal techniques, start with a deep knowledge of the materials enhanced by experimenting with new processes.Impetuous creativity, that draws inspiration from Dutch heritage. The result is a series of colourful, eclectic and off-scale products.
