Design Marcel Wanders, 2014
Steel chrome frame, foam, upholstery
Made in The Netherlands by Moooi

Light and elegant, soft and comfy, the Charles Chair by Marcel Wanders is a triumph of geometrical forms that interact to create a harmonious silhouette, in which the seat is marginally tilted backward by the long-legged frame. This slightly uplifted posture generates an illusion of motion that adds to its graceful flair.

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.

Charles chair is offered with a chrome frame and your choice of a variety of upholstery options.

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.
