About Marcel Wanders
Marcel Wanders’s subversive, often humorous designs combine the innovative with the commonplace. The Knotted Chair (1995), his best-known work, was the product of a collaboration with Delft Technical University’s aviation department. The chair blends a familiar construction technique, macramé, with technologically advanced materials typically used in aerospace. To produce the chair, hand-knotted, heat-resistant synthetic fibers are draped over a mold, injected with epoxy resin and then dried into shape. The result is an imaginative, lightweight, and durable design that appears to defy physics.
Dutch, b. 1963, Boxtel, Netherlands, based in Amsterdam, Netherlands
