Engineering, Design and Invention
Mark Sanders is the Principal of MAS Design – a product design and engineering consultancy established in 1984. He was an early graduate of the Industrial Design Engineering (IDE) course at the Royal College of Art/Imperial College, and has followed the same holistic design principles in business. He is now a visiting tutor on the IDE course and runs MAS Design from a self-built home/office/workshop.
MAS design specialises in integrating engineering and industrial design. Its product portfolio includes a wide range of award-winning patented products; from kitchen tools to operating tables, industrial valves to folding bicycles (including the Strida and IF Mode), many of which are exhibited and sold worldwide. By combining engineering and industrial design, MAS Design is able to undertake projects in their entirety – from pre-concept stage through to production. Most projects involve a high level of innovation and usually result in at least one patent.
