A miniature Ideas Box!

maquette ideas box

An Ideas Box that's only 1/6 the size of the original, but that is as close as it gets to the real thing?

That was the challenge for 18 design students pursuing their master degrees in the Cité du design, a renowned design school in Saint Etienne, a city in eastern central France. The extremely detailed miniature model will be showcased around the world to raise awareness about the device's innovative design and concept. 


Led by French designer Julien De Souza, the students imagined new features, such as fab lab module, and even an in-built system to protect the Ideas Box from the weather.

Thank you for your wonderful contribution!
