Moooi's City System was designed by Marcel Wanders, creative director of the pioneering Dutch collection. In an ongoing project, Wanders will recruit architects to add a design of their own to the system. The first creation in this collaborative effort was presented at Milan this year and produced by fellow Dutch designers MVRDV. Called CanCan, the small containers are made from steel and sheet magnet and can be randomly adhered to the system, creating various compositions reflective of MVRDV's own built work.
