Sabine Marcelis, Designer’s Favorite Designer

While searching for a new mirror we bumped into the creations of Dutch designer Sabine Marcelis. On second thought we already heard about her work. But we’re also busy with seem to be rather forgetful lately, even when it comes to beautiful design objects.

Together with Britt Van Nerven, with whom she graduated from the design academy in Eindhoven, she created this beautiful collection of mirrors. Calling these objects “just” mirrors might even be an understatement. Glass specialist Van Dijken offered them the creative and technical freedom to investigate new ideas in working with glass. They experimented in their factory with colors, layering and different materials to achieve this result you see in the first picture. For the practical-minded readers, It won’t be suitable do apply your make-up in the morning. But that’s not at all where it’s meant for. These are pieces of art you will rather display in the living room.

Céline & Isabel Marant

Sabine Marcelis isn’t only a popular woman on planet deco. Also major international fashion brands and designers such as Céline and Isabel Marant are fans of her work. The display cubicles you see when you enter the boutiques are of her hand. We wouldn’t mind having a few of those in our own wardrobe. Unfortunately our collection of designer handbags isn’t that extended. And honestly, putting a Zara bag on top of these pieces of art would be a mismatch.

Let’s talk neon: Voie light series

Besides the mirrors and cubicles Sabine Marcelis is also know for her light-based works called the Voice light series. She created interior objects made from polished polyester with neon light-paths. It has a great effect in the dark but also in daylight the result looks stunning. We wouldn’t mind having one (or a few) of those in our offices.
