Also col­lab­o­rated with OMA (Rem Kool­haas), and ex­hib­ited at Etage Projects, Vic­tor Hunt Des­ig­nart Dealer, Side Gallery and Nil­u­far Gallery. in­spired by Rachel Whiteread and He­len Pash­gian. “They are both pioneers in cast­ing tech­niques and su­per badass.” cur­rently work­ing on Larger com­mis­sions and spe­cial site­spe­cific projects. “But I’m not al­lowed to re­ally talk about them yet…” what’s next?

Mov­ing with her team to a new, larger stu­dio. “I’d like to take a bit of time out early next year to re­assess; to sit still and re­flect on what ac­tu­ally is in­ter­est­ing.” she says “My style is min­i­mal and ma­te­rial-driven. The form lan­guage I use is very pared down and is not di­luted by dec­o­ra­tion.” we say Marcelis’s work is lu­mi­nous; it’s so fun yet re­fined. She is the per­fect blend of de­signer and artist.
