As the curator by the Stedelijk Museum Mr Ingeborg de Roode- who was curated the exhibition- said:
After 25 years as a designer, and at the zenith of his career, now is the time to analyze his work in a museum context.
Wanders is one of the most important designers of recent decades. One of the exhibition's prime objectives it to explain what he does: to reveal the underlying vision, reflecting on its depth and meaning..."
This is preciously true.
Marcel Wanders is not only an artist designer. He is also a story- teller who combined every series of designed thema with thoughts and interpretations and so raise the issue of meanings and explanations.
Born in Boxtel, - province Brabant- in 2000 he said: I see design as away to tell a story.."
And later on..he tell A and B apart..and that means as he said that he expected interior design to be an addition to what he did but he found it however that was a completely different animal...

Another example his artwork Knotted Chair that is a huge success at the press and public opinion About Knotted Chair he said:
" I wanted to make a chair that says ' I was designed with love, I was made with attention, it wasn't easy but it was worth it. I will serve you for the rest of your life".
