Book Review: Interiors by Marcel Wanders 

Regarded by many as an anomaly in the design world, Marcel has made it his mission to “create an environment of love, live with passion and make our most exciting dreams come true.” His work excites, provokes, and polarises, but never fails to surprise for its ingenuity, daring and singular quest to uplift the human spirit, and entertain. Marcel Wanders’ distinctive output combines a flair for the theatrical with a unique understanding of space that has vaulted him into the top ranks of contemporary design. His interiors projects range from iconic hotels like the Mondrian South Beach in Miami, to fairy-tale private residences in Amsterdam, Mallorca, and Jakarta. Developed integrally with his product design, Wanders’ spaces incorporate a romantic, monumental sensibility that has redefined interior design. Marcel Wanders: Interiors features work from four continents including highly acclaimed designs for the Morgans boutique hotel chain (Thor restaurant in the Hotel on Rivington in New York) and the London flagship for Mandarina Duck.  See also: Book review: Coca-Cola Deluxe Ice Slipcase The interiors developed by Marcel Wanders combine the everyday with the extraordinary.

21st century design by Marcus Fairs

If you’re looking for design-related Christmas presents, this makes the perfect gift, etc etc! Twenty-First Century Design is an overview of design at the start of the new millennium, presenting over 200 of the most important buildings, interiors, products, furnishings and lights from the last few years. With a forward written by Marcel Wanders and lavish colour photos over more than 450 pages, the book also has chapters on clothing, landscape and urban design, graphics and homeware. The book was published in October last year. Frame magazine’s reviewer called it “a 463-page encyclopaedia of cutting-edge design” and added it was “worth the design aficionado’s time and money” (see the full review at the bottom of this page), while Architecture Review described it as “an entertaining romp.” In its review, the Daily Telegraph said “Marcus Fairs knows a thing or two about design.” This beautiful book is an exuberant manifesto defining the design zeitgeist at the start of the twenty-first century, charting the bewildering array of new movements and styles that have erupted over the last few years. It essentially sets the scene for a dramatic transformation in the way design is perceived that will influence the objects and buildings that…
