Design Days preview: One minute with Marcel Wanders

“I’ve been to Dubai many times and Design Days Dubai is a great show, a great place where designers come from all over the world. However, the designs still have their own local identity which I think is quite unique and great to see. There is such a strong cultural identity here in the UAE – one that’s different to the rest of the world.

“For my Personal Editions exhibition I have at the show, this is a collection of designs I’ve done from over the years. It was hard to choose as I had a lot of ideas for Design Days but I chose pieces that would be relevant to the Middle East and also form a diverse collection of what I’ve done. The gold transparency of the Bon Bon Chair resonates with the region’s values and local design, and the Delft Blue collection represents Dutch design. Together, everything has a universal appeal.”
