Dutch designers Sabine Marcelis and Luuk van den Broek join forces for an exhibition at Etage Projects in Copenhagen
With its new exhibition Tincture, Copenhagen’s art and design gallery Etage Projects has invited two accomplished designers to explore color and material as changeable and dynamic elements that go beyond the object to create an overall experience. Participating in the exhibition are Sabine Marcelis, a Dutch/New Zealand designer based in Rotterdam, and Eindhoven-based designer Luuk van den Broek. The duo was brought together to present a series of objects that highlight the lively, artistic nature of their work.
Marcelis’ VOIE light series uses neon and cast polyester resin to examine the path of light as it transects a material. As the light enters the polyester resin, it enhances the material’s color properties while also creating a unique and meaningful intersection between two elements.
As a professional who toes the line between art and industrial design, Luuk van den Broek decided to experiment with the industrial process of zinc electroplating to bring out a plethora of colors.
Together, the designers’ work captures movement through the bias of light, color and material. It cultivates an entire experience out of simple “tinctures”, while gently blurring the line between art and design. Tincture runs through July 4th, 2015, at Etage Projects.
