 "I have great respect for people and the world, and I think that should be the basis of design" - Marcel Wanders

Wanders maintains a philosophy of creating an environment of love, passion and making dreams come true. This optimism, which he has imbued into his life’s work, has made him an award-winning designer. The Museum of Arts and Design in New York awarded him a Visionary Award in recognition of his contribution to the field of design in 2009 and the Good Design Award in 2011.

Wanders also designs architectural projects, such as the Kameha Grand hotel in Bonn, the Mondrian South Beach hotel in Miami and the Villa Moda store in Bahrain. In addition to running his studio, Wanders is co-founder and artistic director of the successful design label, Moooi.

He exhibits widely and his work is included in such significant museum collections as MoMA New York, The Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, and the V&A Museum, London.

The aim of Marcel Wanders, who has designed everything from furniture to toys to clothes, is to recover the human touch in design. "I have great respect for people and the world, and I think that should be the basis of design," said Wanders.
