Stedelijk Museum Hosts Marcel Wanders Exhibit

06 February, 2014

-By Holly O'Dell


The Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam pays tribute to distinguished Dutch designer Marcel Wanders in his first European exhibition since 1999. Marcel Wanders: Pinned Up at the Stedelijk—running through June15—showcases more than 400 items in the lower-level gallery in the museum’s new wing. Furniture, lamps, utensils, cutlery, wallpaper, packaging, and jewelry will be on display, along with images of interiors, design sketches, prototypes, and sculptural objects developed for special projects. Highlights include the Carbon Balloon Chair (2013), which is making its European debut at the exhibit, and a special edition of the iconic Egg Vase.



The exhibit is organized in three parts: a white zone, which analyzes Wanders’ work based on 10 themes; a black zone exploring a more personal, experimental approach in a theatrical setting; and a lounge that examines Wanders’ role as art director for major design brands.



“Marcel Wanders is a creative and innovative force as a designer, driven by a clear and distinctive vision from the very start of his career: to create an extraordinary and sustainable environment through design,” Ingeborg de Roode, Stedelijk’s curator of industrial design and exhibition organizer, said in a statement. “Wanders’ skills as a communicator, coupled with his business insights, contribute greatly to his success. Few designers can boast such a combination of talents.”
