Sam Van Doorn had a pinball machine from the 70s at home. Needing a final project for his graphic design degree in his homeland, Arnhem, he had the idea to turn the pinball machine into an instrument of design.

He then deconstructed the machine and analysed the parts: the ball would be the brush that would create something on paper, as would the obstacles on the table. The project Styn was born, a pinball machine that makes interactive designs as the participant has fun.
