The donut-shaped Boa Pouf for HEM by Sabine Marcelis is perfectly sculptural; a bold graphic form that interrupts interior landscapes with its faultless chunky geometry. This piece of upholstered occasional furniture is rounded and soft, encased in a seamless outer layer that gives it an air-brushed finish: The smooth shape-knit textile that covers the Boa Pouf is a milestone in technologically innovative furniture making. Boa Pouf is as perfect for perching on, propping up feet, lounging against, as it is for making a sculptural statement and is the ideal expression of designer Sabine Marcelis, whose work is characterised by resonating clear, single, notes of absolute material, textile and colour.
Sabine Marcelis is a Dutch designer who runs her practice from the harbor of Rotterdam. After graduating from the Design Academy of Eindhoven in 2011, Marcelis began working as an independent designer within the fields of product, installation and spatial design with a strong focus on materiality. Sabine considers her designs to be true sensorial experiences and not simple static works: the experience becomes the function, with a refined and unique aesthetic.
