These tiny furniture, also served as merch during the exhibition, which worked as a way to cover the expenses for our trip.
After this, we incorporated this exercise of working with scale prototypes for new designs, which helps to reduce costs from our design processes, formal and conceptual analysis, in a first stage on the creation of these
