or Call to Order

The iconic Knotted Chair is an adult inter­pre­ta­tion of the tiny chairs used to deco­rate a doll’s house, a vision­ary creation by designer Marcel Wanders. The macramé tech­nique that inspired the design of the Knotted Chair has been revis­ited in a surpris­ing struc­ture made of carbon covered with aramide fiber cord and then coated with epoxy resin. Thus, an inno­v­a­tive object was born, with an intrin­si­cally roman­tic allure. This project earned a place in the perma­nent collec­tions of the MoMA in New York, the V&A Museum in London, and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam.

Marcel Wanders

Netherlands (1963)

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.
