ALESSI – CIRCUS
ALESSI – CIRCUS
Marcel Wanders created a circus-themed collection of table and kitchenware for Alessi. “The circus is a sensory experience that never leaves you. Its magical. Its mystical. Its larger than life.” Marcel Wanders

Circus tents, clowns, elephants and strongmen are depicted in the collection. There are also 5 limited edition table sculptures based on a common circus character, that each perform a different function.

My favourite is “Gilbert” the Jester. A playful cork screw opener- his hat acts as the handle.

Monster Toys – Cybex
Monster Toys – Cybex
I adore the concept of his Monster Toys collection with Cybex. Marcel Wanders recognised that new parents desired a collection of childrens storage/furniture that could fit seamlessly into the stylish home they had created . Thus the clever, playful, functional, Monster toys was born. “To avoid the expected, we steered away from butterflies and roses and thought of monsters instead“

The high chair is pictured but I really like the “Hausschwein” , the domestic pig. I can imagine any of my grandchildren eagerly packing away their toys into this clever storage pig and clambering all over his back .

Jeux De Crystal – Baccarat
Jeux De Crystal – Baccarat
A collection of elegant, iconic games. A celebration of timeless quality, a statement that Dream Design also aspires too, re-invented for the present. The collection includes, backgammon, Checkers, Dominos, Chinese Go and Chess. Designed with marble and crystal. , the games are a fabulous combination of Marcel Wanders design and Baccarats longevity. A perfect present (for yourself maybe) ….available at www.everythingbutordinary.co.uk

How wonderful is Marcel Wanders daughters name? Joy, Faith, Love Wanders. She will carry this throughout her life.
A last personal note from me, Marcel Wanders is an inspiring designer that many elite furniture companies request to work with time and time again. I think if he had failed as a designer he would have made a lot of money as a top model.
