Design Marcel Wanders, 2005
White powder coated internal steel structure, sprayed resin
Made in Italy by Flos

An elegant classic with a modern twist. Brought to you by Elle magazine's 2006 International Designer of the Year, Marcel Wanders' Zeppelin brings true the definition of a modern classic. The classic chandelier which is of a white powder-coated steel with trasparent 'candles', is sprayed with a unique 'cocoon' resin to create the diffuser. A faceted crystal globe is also included at the lower center for a sparkle effect. This technique and use of material was first popularized by George Nelson and his 'Bubble' lamps and later used by Achille Castiglioni. Zeppelin 1 uses only one 150w halogen bulb and Zeppelin 2 uses three 150w halogen bulbs.

Marcel Wanders' fame started with the iconic Knotted chair in 1996. He is now designing for renowned manufacturers and his work is part of all major design collections around the world. In 2003 he was selected as one of the most important European leaders of change by Newsweek.

Marcel Wanders

Marcel Wanders (1963) was born and raised in Boxtel, the Netherlands, and graduated cum laude from the Institute of the Arts Arnhem in 1988, after briefly attending the Design Academy Eindhoven. Wanders first drew international recognition for his 'Knotted Chair' produced by the Dutch design brand Droog, in 1996. The 'Knotted Chair' has since been acquired by the permanent collection of the MoMA. From his studio in Westerhuis, Amsterdam, he designs for manufacturers, such as: Alessi, B&B Italia, Bisazza, Poliform, Moroso, Flos, Boffi, Cappellini, Droog and Moooi.
The furniture manufacturers and entrepreneurs Dino Gavina and Cesare Cassina founded Flos which became one of the leading Italian light manufacturers in the second half of the 20th century. Its origins lay in the energy of Arturo Eisenkeil who, in 1959, was seeking to find applications for a new, plastic-based material that he was importing to Italy from the United States. Called ‘cocoon’, it was a spray-on plastic coating that Gavina and Cassina recognized as having potential for lighting design. From the outset, Flos established its reputation through its innovative lighting designs from Achille Castiglioni. The collaboration with Achille Castiglioni continued through the '90s, and in 1992 he introduced the "family of products" concept to the market with the Brera series. At the same time, Flos continued to scout for emerging talent at an international level. The first Philippe Starck lamp, Ârŕ, was produced in 1998, followed by the Miss Sissi lamp, Romeo Moon, and Archimoon series.
