The design process was quite easy to control due to the geometry of the object which is something in between a two-dimensional and three-dimensional shape. After modeling the tray in 3D-software, we found that we could make a series of fast and effective maquettes simply by cutting and gluing two pieces of paper with 2D-renders of light and shadow printed onto the paper. This method gave a surprisingly accurate understanding of the shape. We could directly verify the proportions and how the different sizes interacted with different items: a smartphone, spoons, pencils, plants, fruits, candies, tea lights, bouquets of garlic or a bundle of keys.
