Marcel Wanders


Join for Anker Carpets


Under the clouds of a Dutch rainy day, 
I walked through an autumn forest,
Whistling a song in remembrance of summer. 
I was bored with the absence of color.
A grey foggy day can be a curtain blinding our hungry eyes.


Excited, knowing all the beauty and richness of the invisible colors behind the mist.
I could sense the autumn colors and in my imagination they were whispering my name “...Marcel...Marcel...Marcel Wanders...!”
With a sharp long vigilant sword I sliced through the mist. 
Thousands of long misty ribbons were opening up 
And a wonderful palette of autumn beauty unfolded and revealed itself through the void.


In the depth of this visual stereo spectacle I discover new joy, a new world, a world of complexity. The joining of two parallel universes.

Marcel Wanders and ANKER-TEPPICHBODEN joined forces and succeeded in developing an unusual carpet collection for the commercial property segment. Carpet as an instrument of poetic presentation for rooms. A symbiosis of technical perfection and creative extravagance. That's what Join is all about. A new ANKER technology (called CL+) enables this enriching additive in the landscape of structural textile surface. Environmental protection and careful use of natural resources were essential guidelines in the production process; the carpets in the Join Collection are completely produced from the recycled yarn Econyl.
