A Frenchman born in Austria, Marc Sadler currently lives in Milan. Experimentation with plastics, the main theme of his studies as well as a great personal curiosity, has always had a prominent place in his work as a designer. A citizen of the world (he has lived and practised his profession in France, the United States, Asia and Italy), he collaborates with many companies in the fields of furniture, small and large household appliances, lighting, and more purely industrial products, as well as being heavily involved in the sports sector with collaborations spanning almost thirty years. At the beginning of the 1970s, he developed the first ski boot made of fully recyclable thermoplastic material, which quickly gained responsibility for all product lines and remained the world's best-seller for several years. This was the origin of his specialisation in sports design that led him to work with the most important multinationals in the USA, Asia, Japan and Europe, both in sports shoes and in many other sports sectors. A multiple winner of the ADI Compasso d'Oro, he has received many other important international design awards.
