Agronomist, Oceanographer & Apulian Dandy
Marcel Wanders – Natuzzi – 2018-19
Associate Creative Director
For Natuzzi, Marcel Wanders studio has created the “Agronomist”, the “Oceanographer” (2018) and the “Apulian Dandy” (2019) collections. In 2018, various types of contemporary home furniture products were designed to dialogue and complement each other, forming two complete and harmonious lifestyles based on the Puglia landscape, architecture and lifestyle. Represented are the white houses of Ostuni, the blonde terra cotta amphorae, the grey stone of the trulli houses, the warm brown of the fertile earth, the silvery tints of the olive groves and the faded green of the spiny cactus faded by the sun, hung up in garlands at the corners of windows. In 2019, the partnership expands to include the Apulian Dandy collection that harnesses a more cosmopolitan mood. This includes living room furniture such as sofas, chairs, bookcases and a graphic carpet that each reflect Italian architecture and heritage while taking on a cosmopolitan turn.
