Friedman Benda Features Marcel Wanders at Design Miami/
Last February, at Friedman Benda gallery in New York, Marcel Wanders presented his Personal Editions collection in the acclaimed exhibition Portraits. Through a staging of imaginary characters interacting within a distorted fairytale, Marcel introduced a more sensual side of humanity and explored the depths of dark, complex emotions rarely expressed in his work.
From November 30 through December 4 Marcel will bring one of the exhibition’s portraits, the Odjurssäte Murmur, to Design Miami/. As part of an exclusive edition of eight, this object of beauty and relaxation emerges from a fantastical fear and respect of damnation. Odjurssäte is created from refined embroidered leather and is available in both a dark version and color version.
To be celebrated amongst the most reputable international design galleries and curated exhibitions of museum-quality furniture, lighting and objets d’art, these pieces will draw attention to Marcel's seductive departure from his outspoken optimism.
“While I have always designed to connect with humanity and to create meaning between people and objects, this exhibit is more about humanity itself. Our fears, our dreams, our personality traits – the things that make us tick. Showcasing this work will be a rewarding validation for having the courage to look within myself,” says Marcel.
