Discipline: product design

Marco Manders (1965) has been professionally active in the creative sector for the past thirty years. He studied Art Direction at the Academy of Arts (HKU) in Utrecht. He was one of the first in the Netherlands, who in 1985 started to work with the Apple Macintosh and in this way he entered the Graphic sector. Besides graphic design and concept (owner of Opus II and later Omnus) Manders has been busy putting down a product line that is dear to him for the past few years. Manders his first idea had its origin ten years ago after a pitch for Rijkswaterstaat (part of the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment) and from there he kept developing his product more and more. The result is impressive; the Tulpi®-seat.

Marco Manders is currently working on new designs, such as the Tulpi-seat-Shine and the Tulpi-bin.
