The Cybex ‘Parents Collection' by Marcel Wanders Comes to the US
During one of the most celebrated art events in the country, the prestigious Miami Beach Art Fair, Marcel Wanders and Cybex introduced the US to the 'Parents Collection'. In partnership with retailer, Genius Jones, located in Miami's famous Wynwood design district, the launch took place December 3rd at 7:30 pm. Local DJ, Derek Walin, set the mood as art, design and fashion influencers experience this beautiful line of baby furniture – reimagined to fit seamlessly into parents lifestyle.
“The arrival of a newborn should not disrupt how parents live. These pieces work perfectly with the urban lifestyle to create a dream environment in the home,” explains Marcel Wanders.
In addition to the safe and stylish high chair, rocker and bouncer, is a Hausschwein. This mountable domestic pig with removable nose allows children's imagination to get carried away. With an elegantly quilted pattern on its rump, this endearing hog is suited to the most fashionable home environments. When play time ends, the pig’s hollow belly stores toys until the next game starts. The collection also includes artful, exquisitely-crafted hand puppet collectibles that curiously delight every child.
The launch included a silent auction of a Hausschwein signed by Marcel Wanders – with proceeds going to the Arts for Learning Foundation. After the launch, the entire collection is on window display the entire month of December.
“Miami supports art and design like no other city. They understand the passion behind the creativity. There's no better time or place for me to launch this collection in the US,” says Marcel Wanders.
