A key element for Maarten's design is his intuitive and playful way of working. This will also be important in this workshop. Yet, there will be another focus on the designer’s social position and responsibilty – which might be different for each individual. The experiences and solutions, as well as the dilemma's and failures of Maarten's own design life will serve as a guideline and various aspects of design will be touched. We are going to create scale models or small objects with materials such as cardboard, wood or fabric.
