- Distinguishing features
EDIDA DESIGNERS OF THE YEAR 2005. Pot and Wanders collaborated for MOOOI and designed the Carbon chair, winning them an award in the 2005 seating category.
Bertjan Pot is a designer most known for his Random Light that he created in 1999. The light started as a material research, the essential starting point for every product created by Studio Bertjan Pot. The outcome is usually an interior product that displays a fascination for techniques, structures, patterns and colors. Most of Pot’s experiments are born from an impulsive curiosity for the function or appearance of something. From there he takes on challenges with manufacturers to explore possibilities and push boundaries.
Marcel Wanders is a product and interior designer who became internationally known with his iconic Knotted Chair, which he produced for Droog Design in 1996. His work is ubiquitous; designing for leading international companies such as Flos, Alessi, Puma, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, MAC Cosmetics, Cappellini, B&B Italia, Moroso and Target. In 2001 Wanders co-founded the successful design label Moooi, for which he is currently art director. He additionally designs for architectural projects such as the Kameha Grand hotel in Bonn, the Mondrian South Beach hotel in Miami and the Villa Moda store in Bahrain.
