creative director, Marcel Wanders
Amsterdam, Nederlands

Gabriele Chiave (1978). Having grown up and lived in several places around the world – from Africa to South America to Europe – Gabriele approaches design with a different perspective.

Before arriving at Marcel Wanders studio, Gabriele studied in Milan at Italian design schools. He worked at Marc Saddler Studio where he immersed himself in the functionality of Italian design. These skillsets have contributed to shape his vision of design, which has further expanded by working closely with Marcel Wanders. Gabriele is greatly inspired by art, his love of photography and fashion which he brings to the role of Creative Director leading our design teams to design beautiful things that uplift the human spirit.
