Viewing: October 6-15, 2012
Reception: October 10, 2012, 6-8pm
Auction: October 16, 2012, 11am
Pillips de Pury is pleased to present the auction and viewing days for Moss: Dialogues between Art and Design. It is entirely curated by Murray Moss and presents a singular and autobiographical approach to the pairing of art and design–a new paradigm to the traditional auction format, a highly subjective “apples to oranges” approach in the interdisciplinary pairing of disparate works. The auction is comprised of works from Moss Gallery and from the private collection of Murray Moss and Franklin Getchell, as well as certain very special consigned pieces, each paired a work of fine art, contemporary, old masters or even antiquities. Because the sale inevitably represents the thinking and philosophy of Moss gallery across the years, it includes masterworks from the Dutch designers with whom they have long relationships. Among those are Maarten Baas, Hella Jongerius, Studio Job, Marcel Wanders, Julien Carretero and Tomas Libertiny.

Marcel Wanders "Interiors" publication for Rizzoli
May 4, 2011
Now available from Rizzoli: Marcel Wanders: Interiors. Written by Marcel Wanders, with introductions by Linda Tischler and Robert Thiemann. The first large-format monograph on the interiors and building projects of Marcel Wanders, one of the most original designers working today. Marcel Wanders’s distinctive output combines a flair for the theatrical with a unique understanding of space that has vaulted him into the top ranks of contemporary design. His interiors projects range from iconic hotels like the Mondrian South Beach in Miami, to fairy-tale private residences in Amsterdam, Mallorca, and Jakarta. Developed integrally with his product design, his spaces incorporate a romantic, monumental sensibility that has redefined interior design. Starting with his work for the Morgans boutique hotel chain (The Rivington in New York) and the London flagship for Mandarina Duck, Wanders’s work has spread to four continents. He also has recently partnered with Philippe Starck’s and John Hitchcox’s design-focused property development brand, yoo. The interiors developed by his Marcel Wanders Studio are drawn from a graphic tradition that combines the everyday with the ornamental, and these inspirational sources will be harnessed to create an unprecedented interior design volume.
KLM Royal Dutch Airlines began serving meals on a new service for World Business Class passengers, for which leading Dutch designer Marcel Wanders has created porcelain, glassware, cutlery, linen and a tray.
The entire presentation of meals and drinks has been completely renewed to reflect the journey of inspiration KLM strives to offer its passengers. In designing the new service elements, Marcel Wanders has, at the behest of KLM, taken into account the wishes of its customers, the working procedures of cabin crew, as well as environmental considerations.
Typically Dutch Customers have indicated that they appreciate KLM’s typically Dutch character. KLM has therefore decided to embrace this by working with Dutch chefs and designers. Our partnership with Marcel Wanders reflects this philosophy.
Less weight KLM reduces environmental impact by reducing the weight of the service. The lighter the load on board an aircraft, the less fuel it burns, resulting in lower CO2 emissions.
"We are proud to offer our World Business Class passengers a fresh, new product. We are investing in this class and are constantly striving to further improve our products and services," says Erik Varwijk, Executive Vice President of KLM Commercial.
"With the introduction of this new service, a longstanding wish of mine has been fulfilled," says Marcel Wanders. "As a frequent flyer with KLM, I found it quite easy to get a feel for the assignment and to bring about a metamorphosis of the existing service elements. Owing to the ergonomic, technical, economic and logistic guidelines for this design, the new service matches the quality standards of top restaurants."
According to “How to spend it” Lucia van der Post at the Financial Times , “playful and prodigious” Marcel Wanders has not allowed commercial imperatives to rein in his creativity. “His new collection for Baccarat proves that he is still every inch the maverick” she says.
The visionary and revolutionary Dutch designer Marcel Wanders (born 1963) is creating for the Museum a dreamlike, multimedia installation of objects personally selected by the artist to represent pivotal points in his extraordinary career. Using shifting video images, lighting, and sound to illuminate the development of his boldly inventive body of work, Wanders provides the visitor with a unique visual and sensory experience dramatizing the evolution of his designs over the past twenty years. New films detailing Wanders’s design process and philosophy in projects ranging from manufactured products, hotel interiors, and design art make their public premiere in this retrospective installation. The soundscape that accompanies the films provides Wanders’s personal views on design.
