Design Marcel Wanders, 2015
Steel frame, HR foam, wood, upholstery
Made in The Netherlands by Moooi

The beauty of iconic pieces needs to be turned around, played with, and challenged in innovative ways to reach new levels of inventiveness and seduction! Charleston by Marcel Wanders is a classic sofa, elegant and comfortable, dressed in stylish vintage dark brown eco leather with embroidered accents, that has been shifted into a vertical posture. Its grace becomes slender and elongated, tall and majestic, while it plays with our mind-set and expectations.

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.

The traditional armrest becomes a very comfortable seat for one or two people. Certainly an eye catcher, Charleston is also a cosy companion, literally turns the corner to pen a new world of possibilities.

87.4" h | 47.2" w | 57.5" d | seat: 15.7" h | 350 lbs.

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.
