Moooi, The Dutch word “mooi” means “beautiful”, and when Marcel Wanders and Casper Vissers founded a new label in 2001, they added an extra “o” for added value:”: This marked the beginning of Moooi. This pleasure in playfulness is characteristic of the entire collection, the profile of which is provided by Art Director Marcel Wanders. In addition to Wanders’ own designs, other Dutch and international designers, for example Bertjan Pot, Jasper Morrison and Neri & Hu, are part of the design label’s roaster. The style of Moooi’s lighting and furniture is eclectic and yet all have one thing in common: they are refreshingly individual and innovative, faithful to brand’s philosophy of creating an Unexpected Welcome. Classic styles lines are treated to a coolness-kick, standard proportions take on an oversized dimensionality and surprising materials are experimented with. The latest addition: carpets with exciting designs that are applied via a digital printing process, which also enables photorealistic motifs of extreme precision. The Moooi-mix makes its impact through its casual eclecticism. The designs, however, also work perfectly in a minimalistic interior setting: as one-of-a-kind objects that strongly attract attention.

Marcel Wanders In 1995 Marcel Wanders opened his design studio in Amsterdam. The following year, a creative stroke of genius made Marcel Wanders world-famous: the Knotted Chair, made from countless knotted high-tech cording strands, impregnated and hardened with epoxy resin. Since that time, the Dutch product and interior designer has amazed, entertained and polarised with his creative hallmark: his reliance on humour, emotion, romanticism, distortion of traditional archetypes, and mixing of high-tech materials with low-tech craftsmanship. Wanders, born in 1963, is a relentless creator whose reservoir of fantasy seems to never run dry. Around 1700 projects for labels ranging from Alessi to Swarovski as well as for private clients carry his name, and ca. 50 design professionals work in his studio. Parallel to this, he heads the avant-garde label Moooi as Art Director, passionately planning and realizing interiors and their furnishings.

Visitors to the Kameha Grand Hotel in Bonn and Zurich or the Andaz Amsterdam encounter the extravagant Wanders interiors with a combination of amazement and surprise. Dubbed the 'Lady Gaga of Design' by the New York Times, Marcel Wanders’ designs  have been selected for the most important design collections and venues in the world - such as the MoMa in New York, the V&A Museum in London, and the Neue Sammlung in Munich..

Neue Werkstätten, established in 1991, develop individual living- and working areas in close cooperation with architects and create exclusive interiors for their clients. The showroom at Promenadenplatz regularly presents exhibitions of the most important international trends in furniture and interior design. www.neue-werkstaetten.de
