Design Marcel Wanders, 2010
Steel frame, synthetic leather upholstery
Made in The Netherlands by Moooi

A soft, puffy and stylish chair with an optional monster face embroidered on the backrest. The monster is a symbol of the eternal battle between opposite forces that take place in life and can be easily recognized inside ourselves, if we have the courage to open our eyes. Scary? Not at all! You forget about the monster once you sit down and enjoy the chair's comfort and softness.

Marcel Wanders grew up in Boxtel, the Netherlands and graduated cum laude from the School of the Arts Arnhem in 1988. His fame started with the iconic Knotted Chair in 1996. He is now designing for the biggest European contemporary design manufacturers including Moooi of which he is also art director and co-owner. He works on architectural, interior design and consumer home appliances. His designs have been selected for the most important design collections and exhibitions around the world.

Monster chair is offered with a synthetic leather upholstery in black. The chairs can be ordered with or without monster face and with or without armrests. The monster embroidery is identical in both versions.

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.
Founded in 2001 by complementing personalities Marcel Wanders and Casper Vissers, Moooi is named after the native Dutch word for “beautiful”. According to the company, “the third ‘o’ in the brand name stands for an extra value in terms of beauty & uniqueness.” In additon to Wanders’ work, Moooi has produced work from Bertjan Pot, Maarten Baas, Ross Lovegrove and Studio Job. Ultimately, Wanders is responsible for the overall design selection process.
