The Dutch designer Marcel Wanders (born 1963) is creating a multimedia installation of personally selected objects to represent pivotal points in his career. Using shifting video images, lighting, and sound to illuminate the development of his body of work, Wanders provides the visitor with a unique visual and sensory experience dramatizing the evolution of his designs over the past twenty years.

New films—detailing Wanders’s design process and philosophy in projects ranging from manufactured products, hotel interiors, and design art—make their public premier in this retrospective installation. The soundscape that accompanies the films provides Wanders’s personal views on design.
