Marc Sadler

A Frenchman born in Austria, he has lived and worked as a designer in France, the United States, Asia and Italy. One of the first graduates in "esthétique industrielle" from ENSAD...
in Paris with a thesis on plastics, he was a pioneer in the experimentation of materials and contamination between technologies, which have become distinctive aspects of his work. In the early 1970s, he developed the first ski boot made of fully recyclable thermoplastic material, later industrialised by the Italian company Caber. This was the origin of his specialisation in sports design, which led him to work with the most important multinationals in the sector all over the world. Coming from a branch of industry where research and experimentation into new materials and production processes is widespread, allows him to export knowledge to worlds where the concept of design confined to aesthetic form is entrenched. An eclectic designer and citizen of the world, he is now a consultant to companies in the most diverse sectors of industry. A 4-time winner of the Compasso d'Oro (1994, 2001, 2008 and 2014), 1 Honourable Mention (1998) and 2 Selections (1994 and 2008) of the ADI Industrial Design Association, his work has been awarded many other international prizes over the years. His back protector designed for Dainese is in the permanent design collection of the MOMA in New York and the Mite by Foscarini is part of the design collection of the Beaubourg in Paris.
