A Frenchman born in Austria, Marc Sadler has lived and worked as a designer in France, the United States, Asia and Italy. One of the first graduates in Esthétique industrielle at the ENSAD in Paris, with a thesis in plastic materials, he was a pioneer of experimenting with materials and of cross-fertilisations between technologies, both issues that have become distinctive features of his work.
At the beginning of the seventies, he designed the first ski boot made of 100% recyclable thermoplastic material, which was produced on an industrial scale by the Italian firm Caber (which later became Lotto).
By virtue of his eclectic nature, he is now a consultant with firms operating in all areas of industry. The important awards and acknowledgements he has won over the years include four ADI Compasso d’Oro awards (1994, 2001, 2008 and 2014).
The back protector he designed for Dainese features in the permanent collection at the MoMA in New York, while his Mite lamp for Foscarini can be seen in the design collection at the Centre Pompidou in Paris. He is so passionate about painting and drawing that he considers them to be his most authentic interests.
