French citizen born in Austria, Marc Sadler currently lives in Milan. Experimentation with plastics has often formed a key part of his acivity. He already showed a strong curiosity for the subject choosing it for his thesis at ENSAD in Paris. Citizen of the world (he has lived and worked for many years in Europe, North America and Asia), he is a consultant for companies in the fields of home furnishings, large and small household appliances, lighting, technically advanced products, and sports. Despite his reputation as a technical designer, Marc Sadler has a strong feeling for painting and drawing, finding it so emotionally absorbing as to consider it his real passion.
Marc Sadler will be the art director who will oversee the Olev installation at Euroluce 2019.
As a 4-time winner of the Compasso d’Oro, the most coveted and authoritative prize in the world of design, Marc Sadler will be the new creative mind behind the 2019 Olev collection, which will be presented in Milan.
“Designing for OLEV means following the two ‘souls’ of the company, which apparently seem antithetical, but in reality meet and combine in an extremely coherent pathway.
The purely technical soul, which however doesn’t disregard embellishing details, couples with the decorative soul, which has its strength in the research and attention to details.
Different souls, but with common threads that would delight everyone who, like me in this case, has the chance to orchestrate a unique image of the company that will display its real essence on the outside.
I took up this challenge with great interest given the impressive expertise on hand – Andrea’s knowledge in particular and his sincere and enthusiastic aptitude for experimenting new ways of “doing”: more and better.
A combination that will definitely amaze you!”
