Sabine Marcelis’ vision
Working on such an iconic and hugely popular car was a real challenge, particularly given the scale of the project. I was inspired by the idea of creating something unexpected through the interaction between light and materials.

For me, designing a modernised version of Twingo was an opportunity to push the boundaries of my craft. This Twingo pays homage to light and reveals internal and external components in unexpected ways.

I wanted to create amazement by using light to reveal certain details of the showcar.
