DESIGN INSPIRATION

2015 MARCEL WOLTERINCK

 

The Monte Cervino—or, if you prefer, Matterhorn—is a piece of intricate design
by Mother Nature. Outlined against a clear blue winter’s sky, it appears
slender, elegant, almost as light as a feather. But its timeless presence will
outlast everyone and everything as, underneath, it is powerful and strong.
It is this juxtaposition between ‘hard’ and ‘soft’, between ‘elegant’ and ‘sturdy’
that inspired Marcel Wolterinck’s Cervino series.

Marcel Wolterinck

When Marcel Wolterinck opened his flower shop in Laren, the Netherlands, in 1986, little did he know he would soon be one of the prominent representatives of modern Dutch design. His floral creations with their immediately recognizable ‘Wolterinck signature’, evolved into interior design projects around the world. It will come as no surprise that Marcel loves using wood and other natural materials, celebrating their unique variations in texture and colour. His designs are sophisticated yet utterly liveable, with a strong emphasis on a sense of warmth and comfort. Marcel loves the interplay between indoor and outdoor spaces: ‘I enjoy design in which the outside and inside grow together and towards each other, overlapping and connecting.’
