Take a look at the Moooi Gallery

art & culture

The talent of Dutch designer Marcel Wanders is found here. It's a gallery that is worth a look.

Fans of this star of Dutch design will enjoy seeing this gallery, which opened in 2008 and expanded in 2011. Its name is derived from the word mooi which means ‘beautiful' in Dutch. Tucked away in Jordaan, a fashionable neighbourhood, it brings Wanders' entire universe to life. He's the creator of the very sophisticated decor of the Andaz Hotel in Amsterdam.

In 1996, Wanders created the Knotted Chair, which became a coveted collector's item. Recently, the Stedelijk Museum highlighted the 20-year anniversary of the artist, who said, ‘A well-thought out design celebrates the quality of the relationship between itself and its audience.' Wanders has inspired other iconoclastic designers.

Don't be surprised if some furniture or objects seem strange: here, you are at the extreme avant-garde of contemporary design.
