Marcel Wanders


Always wondered about the Personal Editions Collection?

Bon Bon _News _Big

The 'Bon Bon Chair' (2010) is iconic of Marcel Wanders' Personal Editions Collection. This series explicitly shows the designer's interest in the combination of traditional crafts and industrial processes, in durability, fantasy and creativity for the benefit of humanity.

The relationship between man and machine, industrial techniques and commercial distribution are central themes in design. 

Breaking away from these shackles and inspired by the wish to have a more direct hand in design, Marcel decided to create a unique collection of pieces: Marcel Wanders Personal Editions.

These limited, exclusive editions are a step towards humanized design; objects that have a greater (personal) significance. a concern that ultimately infiltrates Marcel Wanders' entire oeuvre.

The Personal Editions collection is rooted in Marcel's desire to push himself by exploring creativity in a more direct, 'hands on' way, to incorporate hazard and coincidence into the work, and to test and experiment, as exemplified in the One Minute sculptures. 

Personal Editions pieces are unique and poetic in their quest to interrogate Marcel's main practice as a designer.

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."

Do you agree lace is lovely? 

Does glass always pass the light?  

Believe it or not you're a light-weight

Would you care for a little fright

What is your favourite book

Do you believe broken porcelain brings luck?  

Are you fond of white

Have you heard the news

Have you ever met Marcel

Are you afraid of black
