We already reviewed the awesome work of Rotterdam based designer Sabine Marcelis, who creates functionally decorative pieces that demand an interaction between the space and the user. With a strong focus on materiality, her work is informed by the properties of the selected materials and the effects created by them. A selection of her works, including the Voie light series and the Seeing Glass mirrors, both available at Matter.
About Sabine’s Voie light Series:
The VOIE light series is the result of an investigation into the manipulation of light-paths. Having chosen neon as the primary light source, the designed objects create an interception on the path the light follows through the addition of a singular extra material.

The addition of cast polyester resin diffuses the light path and in turn uses the light source to enhance the color properties within the resin. A new moment is created when this mutually beneficial relationship is formed between materials, defining the unique properties of each where the two meet.
About Seeing Glass Series:
Seeing Glass is a series of glass objects resulting from an ongoing study into optical effects created with glass as the primary material.
Glass specialists allowed the designers to play around and experiment in their factory to investigate new possibilities and through the use of materials, colur and layering, unexpected effects are created which play with ones visual perception as well as the surrounding space.
