Marcel Wanders creates a state-of-the-art clock for Christofle. Joining meticulous design and fine mechanical skills, this item sets a new standard in the manufacture of luxury mechanical clocks.
Oversized proportions, complex etching work and noble materials set the pace. Available in an exclusive edition of 50, the owner can customize the three internal clocks to time different cities across the globe; anywhere from Tokyo to Paris to Miami.
Preciousness, sensuality and poetry distinguish the silversmith’s work. As part of the Jardin d’ Eden silverware collection, the nature-inspired silver etchings are lovingly executed. This clock carries the family’s iconic pattern signature; interlaced leaves, curled lys flowers and decorative apples against a geometric matrix reminiscent of the lush garden. Marcel’s sustainability strategy comes across in his high standard design; this is a timeless luxurious item to always hold on to.
Departing from their well-known glass mosaics, luxury Italian design brand Bisazza has launched a new line of decorative ceramic wall tiles for their 2014 collection; a bold, brand new collection conceived and created by Marcel Wanders.
The tiles use Marcel’s signature hexagonal shape, and come in black or white diamond and flower forms that can be freely matched, transforming walls into tactile and asymmetrical artworks. Innovative and daring, Frozen Garden is ideal for all interiors.
To wit: “It only takes one crystal to grow a Frozen Garden. Plant one with loving care, and watch Frozen Garden unfold before your eyes. Organic and wild, glass and ceramic crystals transform walls into tactile and textured universes. Run wild in a garden of your own.”

If you are a follower of this blog you will know how much I love Marcel Wanders work, if it were up to me I’d post about every single item he designs. This time the world renowned designer has designed a collection of suitcases for luggage and bag company Fabbricapelleteriemilano. The collection is called: ‘Saint-Jacques.
Each of the suitcases comes with a TSA combination lock and handles designed to provide easier means of toting the bags around.
The interiors are organized to allow for the optimal placement of one’s belongings, while the exterior of the suitcase is covered in wanders’ signature pattern with zipper pulls that recall the ironic face of the designer.
‘I think the style conscious people will love the colors, the contrasts and the interior in bright colors,
while those who are attracted by the multi-sensory will appreciate the three-dimensional embossed surface (…).’ – marcel wanders
The suitcases are available in quick silver, jet black or space blue colors.
