Regarded by many as an anomaly in the design world, Marcel Wanders has made his mission to “create an environment of love, live with passion and make our most exciting dreams come true”. His creativity is explosive, ironic and enthusiastic: he creates delicate, fine products, in which he exalts the romantic, holistic and archetypal aspects that inspired their creation. The cutting-edge technology he relies upon to produce them is infused with humanity, as he challenges what he considers the technocratic era of design with his more emotional and personal approach.
