SABINE MARCELIS (1984-)
Wall Lamp of The ‘voie’ series
Manufactured by Sabine Marcelis
This is the first 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 colour properties within the resin. A new moment is created when this mutually beneficial relationship is formed between the materials, defining the unique properties of each where the two meet.
