Egg is a creation by the multi-talented Dutch designer Marcel Wanders who first drew international acclaim for his iconic knotted chair – an item now permanently exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in New York – and has since tried his hand at everything from collaborations with MAC to the interior design of the Andaz Amsterdam hotel. Although Marcel Wanders creates pieces that are new and contemporary, each design is classically influenced and makes reference to the things we have all around us: the beautiful shaping of wood within chair legs, banisters and table legs, for example, can be seen in the golden stems of his striking glassware. The Marcel Wanders collection for M&S brings together a stunning collection of gifts with beautiful design at the heart, at a price that makes them accessible to all.
