Model Making & Furniture Design:
Models are often created to test the performance of a particular design at an early stage of development and conceptualization. Using different mediums such as metal, wood, plastic, paper; they also aid to visualize the appearance of the space or an object.
These are a great medium to understand if a particular design solution will work or not. In time, a model can help lead the creative imagination of the mind to the actualization of making a furniture piece.
In a commercialized sense, these representations are a great way to translate & sell your design!
