A lea­der on the in­ter­na­tio­nal lighting sce­ne, Sa­bi­ne Mar­ce­lis plays wi­th trans­pa­ren­cies and rain­bow co­lours. Crea­ting the im­pal­pa­ble “De­si­gn re­flec­ts my per­so­na­li­ty: pro­fes­sion and per­so­nal at­ti­tu­des pro­du­ce all of tho­se won­der­ful mo­men­ts that can cat­ch the eye”, says Sa­bi­ne Mar­ce­lis, de­si­gner ba­sed in Rot­ter­dam, the Ne­ther­lands. Af­ter fif­teen years in New Zea­land, the de­si­gner re­tur­ned to Eu­ro­pe and at­ten­ded the De­si­gn Aca­de­my in Ein­d­ho­ven. “He­re I lear­ned to do things im­pos­si­ble to crea­te on my own and I di­sco­ve­red the im­por­tan­ce of in­te­rac­ting wi­th all the ac­tors in the crea­ti­ve pro­cess”. She con­ti­nues: “I do feel pri­vi­le­ged to be able to ex­hi­bit my works in art gal­le­ries”. Whi­ch was the ca­se for her Vo­ie lamps and Seeing Glass and Can­dy Cu­bes fur­ni­shing ac­ces­so­ries, an ex­pres­si­ve syn­the­sis of a spe­ci­fic fa­sci­na­tion: for light ef­fec­ts and co­lours that chan­ge a sta­tic ob­ject in­to a dy­na­mic one. “Pic­king the right ma­te­rials is fun­da­men­tal. My fa­vou­ri­tes? Glass, re­sin, neon and mir­rors”. Light­ness and re­flec­ti­ve qua­li­ties: from the im­pal­pa­ble to the so­lid. “I li­ke that peo­ple can find their own mea­ning in my pie­ces, be­cau­se that means they are ac­ces­si­ble”, con­fes­ses Mar­ce­lis wi­th trans­pa­ren­cy.
