Marcel Wanders design studio is located right in the heart of Amsterdam’s creative Jordaan district and he aims to inspire people from all over the world to live and think differently. In fact, Marcel Wanders is an outstanding interior designer, whose work excites, provokes, and polarises opinions but never fails to surprise anyone and exceed expectations for its ingenuity, daringness and singular quest to uplift the human spirit and entertain.
Wanders has a clear notion of the world of design and what it should be done to break the boundaries of the conventional design thinking: “The world of design is rapidly changing, from a once-hermetic reality into a more human, accessible and versatile environment. The design is opening up and finding its way to a broader audience, as more and more people become interested in the way design contributes to their lives. Within the world of design, I can sense the will, power and potential to direct our creative talents toward areas and people our dreams have never touched before. We should use this momentum to reach out and broaden the significance of our creative field. For too long now, we have kept the world of design small and secluded, shutting out many new friends in the process.”
