Made of epoxy resin, crocheted rope and metal, the 'Bon Bon Chair' (2010) is iconic of Marcel Wanders' interest in the combination of traditional crafts and industrial processes, in durability, fantasy and creativity for the benefit of humanity.
In Marcel's own words: "I want to make things that evoke new human connections and impact our lives in interesting and meaningful ways, and which people cherish and want to keep forever."
"By joining two disparate materials and two opposite production techniques, I wanted to underline the idea of artificiality. Therefore the name 'Cyborg'; an utopian improved version of reality. In addition, this idea of embracing two opposites and showing how they can connect to each other to create a unique and surprising whole is a recurrent theme in my work." Marcel Wanders said about the project.
