Making the Most of a Model by Sander Manse

Making the Most of a Model

All designers use scale models or maquettes in their development process. But you never get to see them; only the end product is ever shown. In his own work, Sander Manse has experienced the intrinsic value of using models and is convinced that they deserve more attention. Working with models can help designers experiment with new forms while also engaging the general public, giving them an insight into the thinking behind a design. Sander’s models can bend, fold, roll, or expand. They can connect different planes and corners or wrap around existing structures. In short, they display the possibilities of models, as a practical method to innovate and experiment.
