Key element for inspiration is the Manual Thinking Box, a vertical storage system with its contents at hand and at sight of everyone. Apart from containing practical objects such as stationery, the boxes can be filled with all kinds of materials, objects and samples, which help to spark the imagination of the user, who is triggered to think in different directions. The objects can serve as source of inspiration or can be used directly to give shape to any idea in form of a prototype. A concrete use is the Box Stimuli method, which helps to create an itemization of characteristics of each object, which in turn serve as stepping stones for surprising ideas.
