Marcel Wanders: Daydreams

Philadelphia Museum of Art
November 22, 2009 - June 13, 2010


Marcel Wanders, the Dutch artist behind this exhibit plummets visitors into a dreamy atmosphere. The massive "Calvin" lamp dwarfs visitors who view it from its underside. The draping fabric composing the lamp shade is offset against a soft white light, bathing the viewer in a sea of cloud-like material. The gold "Knotted Chair" was the first design that brought the artist international recognition. Designed for Droog Design in 1996, the aramid-and-carbon fiber macrame chair is exhibited suspending from a large sky blue balloon.

"Since the beginning of my career, I have tried to open the hearts of people and inspire them to make their lives into masterpieces. This exhibition shows some highlights of my work in a specially created Philly dreamscape. I hope the exhibition will educate, entertain, and above all, inspire all those who visit, to dream."
- Marcel Wanders
