or Call to Order

The Big Shadow light is notable for being one of Marcel Wander’s first projects, reflect­ing his contem­po­rary vision. Big Shadow finds its origin from abat-jour table lamps. Here, Wanders read­dresses this tradi­tional style by combin­ing inno­v­a­tive tech­niques and mate­ri­als, going beyond cover­ing the shade with fabric but includ­ing the base, thus creat­ing an overall warm and cozy light source. Big Shadow light is a free-stand­ing diffused light­ing fixture, avail­able in differ­ent sizes and heights. Its struc­ture consists of a chrome varnished metal bar with a cover in white polyamide and viscose.

Netherlands

Born in 1963, Marcel Wanders is a Dutch designer and art director, who gained a following after the debut of his Knotted Chair in 1996. He opened Powerhouse Studio in Amsterdam in 2000, where he developed furniture pieces of his own design and welcomed projects with other international design specialists. Shortly after he founded his own studio, he became the co-founder of the design label Moooi. Wanders invited over 50 international designers in 2014 to his Powerhouse Studio, which resulted in partnerships of over 1700+ projects for both private clients and product design development. His collaborations include projects with Alessi, Flos, and Swarovski. In 2015, Wanders created a prefabricated house named Eden for Revolution Precrafted.
