Sabine Marcelis

Dutch designer Sabine Marcelis lives and works in Rotterdam (Netherlands). Raised in New Zealand, she studied industrial design for two years at Victoria University of Wellington, then continued her studies at the Design Academy Eindhoven, from which she graduated in 2011. Since then, she has been running Studio Sabine Marcelis, exploring the fields of product, installation and spacial design with a strong focus on materiality. Her work is characterised by pure forms that highlight material properties. Sabine Marcelis applies a strong aesthetic point of view to her collaborations with industry specialists. This method of working allows her to intervene in the manufacturing process, using material research and experimentation to achieve new and surprising visual effects for projects that are both showcased in galleries and commissioned by commercial and private clients. Since setting up her studio, Sophie Marcelis’ work has been exhibited at the Boijmans van Beuningen museum in Rotterdam as well as the musée des arts décoratifs in Paris. She works also with Victor Hunt Designart Dealer (BE), Etage Projects (DK), Side Gallery (SP) and Gallery S. Bensimon (FR).
