“It spreads like a bucket of glitter.” —Marjan van Aubel

Van Aubel is an Amsterdam-based solar designer whose innovative practice spans the fields of sustainability, design, and technology. In collaboration with scientists, engineers, and institutions like Swarovski and ECN.TNO, the Dutch Energy Centre, van Aubel works to promote extreme energy efficiency through intelligent design. From working with expandable materials to domestically integrating solar cells that mimic the process of photosynthesis in plants, she adds a double function to objects and puts them to work: A table is not just a table, but also a producer of electricity.


Through her practice, van Aubel aims to redefine our relationship with solar technology and accelerate its transition to ubiquity. Her work has been exhibited at the V&A, Stedelijk Museum, and Design Museum London. It can be found in the permanent collections of many prestigious institutions, including MoMA and the Vitra Design Museum.


In 2019, van Aubel won a Dutch Design Award chosen by the public and in 2018 the Climate Action Challenge organized by What Design Can Do. In 2017, Swarovski named her Designer of the Future, and in 2016 she received WIRED’s Innovation Award as well as the Wallpaper Design Award, among other honors.
