call the 'Contemporary Renaissance of Humanism'. Rooted in a humanistic perspective, Marcel Wanders studio brings back humanity in the technocratic world of design. Creating a reality in which designer, craftsperson and user feel welcomed and embraced. With each new project, Marcel Wanders studio defies design dogma, preferring to focus instead on the holistic, romantic, surreal, archetypical, rather than the technocratic. In this universe, the coldness of industrialism is replaced by the poetry, fantasy, and romance of different ages, vividly brought to life in the contemporary moment. Marcel Wanders’ work excites, provokes and polarises, but never fails to surprise, to celebrate and entertain. Regarded by many as an anomaly in the design world, it is his mission to create an environment of love, live with passion and make our most exciting dreams come true. marcelwanders.com 129
