Books: Marcel Wanders: Behind the Ceiling
Marcel Wanders is the highly anticipated first monograph on one of the most influential, prolific and celebrated international designers today. Wanders’ designs are characteristically buoyant and imbued with his signature irony and quirky dry wit that evoke imagination; nevertheless all of the featured examples of furniture, lighting, interiors, textiles, tableware, decorative porcelain and ceramic vases as well as his personal art editions are unpretentiously urbane. This book showcases his body of work and stellar career through stunning photography, sketches, copious texts and quotes from the designer himself, offering a first-hand account of Wanders’ irresistible universe.
Lavishly printed, this book showcases Marcel Wanders’ work over the past decade. It features tableware for the renowned Dutch porcelain manufacturers Tichelaar Makkum andRoyal Delft, as well as his personal art editions such as his acclaimed oversized ceramic bells, crochet seating and sculptures launched by his own studio. In addition, it presents textiles and furniture he has designed for an extensive client list including brands such asB&B Italia, Poliform, Moroso, Cappellini, Droog as well as Moooi, of which he is also Art Director and co-owner. An entertainer at heart, his theatrical performances and installations are also included, which prove his exceptional skill at amplifying experience with mesmerising environments.
