We stumbled over this beautiful portfolio of design this morning, and thought you'd like it too.
It's the work of Sabine Marcelis, a student currently based in Eindhoven, where she has just completed the third year of her Bachelor of Design at the city's prestigious design Academy.
Here's just a few pieces from her portfolio which displays a minimal refined hand applied to creating objects to assist everday tasks.
She's created, amongst other things; a peculiarly abstract (yet perfectly practical) clock, a coat rack/storage system for your hallway, a little shelf for a book that transfoms into a lamp when you remove the book to read, and the cutest, neatest little coffee maker we ever saw.
Whilst excelling in the development of small, thoughtful objects, Sabine has also demonstrated that her ideas scale up pretty darn well too - she's also designed a kinetic wind sculpture for the open space behind Te Papa, National Museum, in Wellington, New Zealand. The city is known for its extreme winds and earthquakes, and Sabine drew inspiration from the mark both can leave behind. Using the ‘Pin Art’ toy as a precedent, the sculpture captures the wind gusts through the distortion of its surface.
We're impressed - as evidently, were design studio Front who took her on as an intern this year.
Another young talent to watch out for...
