This paper presents a report of a workshop held in Konfack, University College of Art, Craft and Design, Sweden. The objective is to investigate how designer creates the meaning in the intersection between sketches and 3D physical mock-up. The method of the study is using sketches to act as a medium to transmit the meaning to 3D physical mock-up (clay modeling) by designers to resolve the task  Object for seating . The authors analyze the data from the lines of sketching through comparisons of aspects such as variation, physical effects, and psychological effect. Meanwhile, the 3D physical mock-up shape is formalized according to principles of design. The reflection of the sketches and 3D physical mock-up shows that some meaning occur at the intersection between them. This study reveals that participants generate a variety of meaningful designs using sketches and mock-ups throughout the design process.
