Marc Sadler was born in Austria. He is a French citizen and at present lives in Milan. He graduated from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs. Paris, in 1968. Devoted from the start to the experimentation with plastic materials in the 1970s he designed the very first ski-boot in thermoplastic material. The way was opened towards a long and fruitful collaboration with Caber (afterwards known as Lotto), that led him to the patenting of the ski-boot with symmetric shell, the most successful ski-boot for several years all over the world. This represented the origin of his specialization as a designer for the sport sector but also opened up opportunities within the furniture industry. Today he works with firms in the fields of home furnishing, big and small household appliances, and lighting. Marc Sadler is also a talented artist in drawing, painting and sculpture.
