In becoming a world leading luxury skincare brand, La Prairie’s name is synonymous with innovation, performance, and Swiss purity. This constant pushing of the boundaries is what led to the collaboration for the Skin Caviar Ritual capsule tray, where Sabine Marcelis had the opportunity to focus La Prairie’s expertise on a specific product. The result; an object of desire, inspired by the company’s iconic, bold, cobalt blue glass packaging of the jar.

The Skin Caviar Ritual capsule tray, was first displayed along with a physical installation at Art Basel 2023. Named Cobalt House, Marcelis’ immersive space beautifully complemented the Skin Caviar Luxe Cream, relating to the contrast between the cobalt blue jar and the indulgent texture of the cream within. The sensorial design invites visitors to circulate through a vibrant corridor that leads to a cozy, cream-colored space, encapsulating the codes of the cream and transporting guests into the world of Skin Caviar; where design, beauty, and science come together.
‘Light, color, and material are three things I always revert back to with every project,’ describes Marcelis, named Designer of the Year for ELLE Decor’s 2023 International Design Awards, ‘The Cobalt House is about creating this duality of spaces and experience. You first experience the outer layer, which is this intense blue color in glass. And then you come into this closed-off room where it’s very much the opposite, with soft shapes and curves. You feel like you’ve suddenly landed in a very different place where you’re taken into the cream itself,.’
