Mannequino is an ultra light-weight and compact modular pop-up mannequin system designed by Royal College of Art graduates Kelly Sant and Arash Kaynama.


The patented design is a technologically and environmentally smart, durable modular visual merchandising system, intuitive to assemble in minutes and disassemble in seconds. It can hang easily or be freestanding depending on the components used in the system. These can be delivered globally in volume on a next day delivery Worldwide at a fraction of the cost and burden of using traditional mannequins.


This clever closed loop manufacturable concept can achieve a 90% reduction in logistics costs using the Mannequino shells in volume around the World, and a 50% reduction when used with its stand and internal lighting system. 


Its non-toxic recyclable panels are designed to be replaced individually at low cost, as opposed to the painful ongoing running costs of traditional glass fibre resin mannequins. 


It has a modern contemporary design led aesthetic and for a more traditional look, the bust comes with a durable, elegant fabric cover.


It houses a smart internal LED lighting system remotely controlled by a smart mobile device, giving you an amazing array of colours and intensities under Mannequino's skin which can also sync to music using Apps on a smart phone or tablet to create highly desirable visual effects perfect for window displays, product launches, trade shows or in-store. 


Mannequino’s key benefits have been fully field tested in a roll out by Ben Sherman globally and by Muji for their European stores.
