The publication "No Fear of Glass", with texts by Sabine Marcelis, Anna Puigjaner and Ippolito Pestellini Laparelli, photos by Pim Top and graphic design by Sophia Schullan, is the result of the intervention of the same name that the artist, together with Side Gallery and Fundació Mies van der Rohe, presented in the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion between December 2019 and January 2020.

Sabine Marcelis explored how the design ideals, materiality, and the proportions with which the pavilion has been constructed can be translated into the creation of functional furniture pieces. The title of the exhibition and the publication responds to "Fear of Glass", the book about Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Lilly Reich’s Barcelona Pavilion by Josep Quetglas. Mies van der Rohe was famously asked to not use too much glass in the Pavilion and Marcelis’s works in turn are produced from glass, pushing the materials limits to the extreme.
