Quote of Note | Marcel Wanders

marcel.jpg“I love Milano. Historically, the city is the biggest intellectual design thinking container. It is the cradle of design as well as the hometown of the mothers of its important heroes. Still today it has the capacity to sometimes flip inside out and outside in, cover the planet with its brains, and attract and contain the most complete and massive amount of creative passion and vision. It is the place where designers feel there is a future and the world awaits their talents, a place where history is written. Milano is kissed by orchids.”

-Milan-bound Marcel Wanders, in an e-mail sent today. The designer’s latest work will be shown during the 50th Salone del Mobile (April 12-17) by the likes of Alessi, Cappellini, Flos, Magis, and Mooi.
