MIKRO-Man on Mars by Sam Buxton

The product designer Sam Buxton gave a new life to flat stainless steel cards, transforming them into wonderful tiny sculptures.

By deploying a chemical milling process he had discovered in the electronics industry, Buxton created a flat fine stainless steel card the various parts of which unfolded into a 3-D replica of himself working at his computer. When a manufacturer spotted it in the Design Museum’s 2001 exhibition Design Now – London, the business card was put into mass-production as the first in the series of MIKRO-Man fold-up sculptures.
