Marcel Wanders’s Animal Sanctuary

The Dutch designer offers a glimpse into the early stages of his new Pet Lights series for Moooi.

Wanders draws his Pet Lights series. Made of frosted glass with gold-plated details, the table lamps take on three distinct shapes: a penguin, a rabbit, and an owl.

“My sketchbook is something of a sanctuary for me. Putting pencil to paper, I’m able to extend my concepts and designs because I can draw an environment around them, giving them context and meaning. When I draw, I can create shadows and depth. Drawing makes things begin to appear real, which inspires me to keep going. It leads to collaboration and even more sketches, lifting my designs to the next level.”
