Map² designed by Anne Stauche, is a tear resistant interactive paper map that mimics some of the features of their digital peers. Design is all about problem solving and fulfilling a need. Frustrated by rigid and static maps with a lack of details, Stauche designed the interactive maps that zoom into more detailed areas when unfolded. Starting off as a square with a minute city overview, it unfolds into a transit map and then again into 4 equal quadrants. The amazing part of this is that each of these quadrants are able to unfold even further, focusing on the area of the city.
Maps of London and Berlin are available.
