Pavia: this historic city in Italian Lombardy is a true treasure trove of art and
culture. Walk along its cobbled streets and old-world ‘elegance’ permeates
the air. Marcel Wolterinck’s design may be contemporary, the same timeless
values of elegance, quality and luxury still apply to his ‘Pavia’ dining chair.
Never mind the fact that it is so comfortable, that it is perfect for the Italian
‘dolce far niente’.

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.’
