Marre Moerel was born in Breda, the Netherlands in 1966. Moerel studied fashion design in Rotterdam (NL), and received an BA Hons in sculpture from Exeter, England. She graduated from the Royal College of Art in 1991 with a Masters Degree in furniture design. In 1993 she moved to New York City, where she worked for 10 years as fine artist, freelance designer and taught furniture design at Parsons School of Design from 1995-1999.
In 2002, to expand her horizons and in search for new inspiration, Moerel moved to Madrid, Spain, where she established her own design studio and gallery.
From here she works on self-initiated projects; she has developed her own collection of products which range from Furniture Design, Lighting, Product, and Accessories but also continues her conceptual work as fine artist to create unique and limited edition pieces.
Besides producing her own work she also collaborates with internationally acclaimed design companies such as Cappellini and Offect.
Both Moerel’s Art and Design have been published and exhibited extensively worldwide, and in 2015 she was nominated as ‘Most Influencial Designer’ by Interiores Magazine.
Moerel’s aim is to create timeless yet contemporary objects and environments, blending together current and historical references with a certain sense of humour and delicacy.
Her own line of pobjects focuses on hand-made ceramics, to express the inherent beauty of this sensuous, primal material through the production of emotionally charged objects.
