Born in Breda, the Netherlands in 1966.
Moerel inititally studied fashion design in Rotterdam (NL); received an BA Hons in sculpture from Exeter (UK), and in 1991 she finalized her studies with a Masters Degree in furniture design from the Royal College of Arts in London (UK).
In 1993 she moved to New York City, where she worked for 10 years as freelance designer and fine artist, whilst teaching furniture design at Parsons School of Design (1995-1999).
In 2002, to expand her horizons and in search for new inspiration, Moerel moved to Madrid, Spain, where she established her own design studio/gallery.
From here she works on self-initiated projects and develops her own collection of objects which range from Furniture design, to Accessories, Lighting and Product design.
Moerel’s aim is to create timeless yet contemporary products and environments; blending together current and historical references with a certain sense of humour and delicacy.
Her work focuses on hand-made objects, to express the inherent beauty of primal materials and processes through the creation of functional yet emotionally charged objects.
Besides producing her own line of products she also collaborates with private clients as well as internationally acclaimed design companies, such as Cappellini and Offect and her work is represented by establisehd galleries such as Rossana Orlandi, Mint and Aybar Galleries.
She continues her teaching practices at various design schools and universities such as the UEM, ETSAM and IED where she directed a Masters course in Lighting and Product Design.
Both Moerel’s Art and Design have been published and exhibited extensively worldwide.
In 2015 she was nominated Most Influencial Designer of the Year by Interiors Magazine.
