physical_description
Flat stainless steel, circular in shape, an invitation to event, acid etched with the shapes of nine skyscrapers two of which project beyond the edge of the disk, a lamppost and the 'griffin' logo and brand of Vauxhall Motors, a stylised flower or tree, a skater in a 'half-pipe' and curved patterns, possibly intended to represent roads; the centre of the disk cut out to form two supports when folded down.

public_access_description
Sam Buxton was one of the four designers short-listed for the Design Museum's Designer of the Year award in 2004. His three-dimensional business cards and fold-up sculptures are made with an acid etching process. His practice explores the notion of print-making as a three-dimensional process and offers interesting comparisons with the numerous prints and plates in the V&A's collections.
