Marcel Wanders Pinned Up : 25 Years of Design
This book is a critical survey of Dutch designer Marcel Wanders, covering twenty-five years of his work, from his early career to upcoming projects. It provides a framework for different aspects of Wanders's designs. Stedelijk Museum's curator Ingeborg de Roode analyzes Wanders's product designs within an international context, along with an essay about this renowned designer's interiors by Jennifer Hudson and an exclusive interview with Wanders himself, conducted by Robert Thiemann and Alexandra Onderwater. Further essays and contributions richly illustrate and document more outstanding design projects. In addition, an illustrated 130-page inventory of his most important work and a concise biography round off the publication.
The book's release coincides with a major exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, as the largest-ever survey of one of the Netherlands' most distinguished designers.
Marcel Wanders is a figurehead of Dutch design who put three-dimensional design from the Netherlands on the international map in the 1990s. An innovative approach to materials and technology, as well as the blending of handcraft and industrial technology, characterizes Wanders's work, which also includes his successful label Moooi and his flamboyant designs for interiors and objects.
