Leading Dutch designer Marcel Wanders to speak at MosBuild 2019

Marcel Wanders, one of the Netherlands' most prominent designers, will be taking part in MosBuild 2019’s business programme to talk about his exciting collaboration with leading bathroom product manufacturer Laufen.

Well-known across the world, Marcel Wanders is the founder and art director of Moooi interior design company. Wanders has collaborated with numerous premium brands in the past such as Alessi, Baccarat, Bisazza, Christofle, Kosé Corporation, Flos, KLM, Hyatt Hotels Corporation, Louis Vuitton, Morgans Hotel Group, Puma, and Swarovski. His work has also been exhibited in world-class museums including Paris’ Centre Pompidou, the MoMA in New York, and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam.

For MosBuild’s 25th anniversary this year, visitors will get the chance to see Wanders’ new interiors collection on display in the Perfect Home installation area. His latest collection of bathroom accessories for Swiss brand Laufen will be displayed in a 400 sqm house designed by Boris Uborevitch-Borovsky and other leading Russian designers. The New Classic collection reflects a modern lifestyle that leans towards the bohemian, exhibiting slightly eclectic aspects and offering a new twist on the familiar. 

Wanders looks to the past for inspiration, as well as a mix of cultures and perspectives, making his post-postmodern language more recognisable than anyone else’s. Our time, according to him, is the time of the 'modern renaissance of humanism' with focus on emotions, impressions and sensations of humanity.

Wanders’ presentation will take place at 12.50 on Wednesday 3rd April - see the full agenda here.
