Mini Furniture
Open workshop inviting to experiment and make things ourselves

Design miniatures have been available on the market for 20 years. They are valuable collectors pieces based on classics of design history. However, they do not include any DIY furniture. We could change this by simply building such pieces ourselves – as homage to “doing it yourself” or to DIY designers. In designing mini furniture at a scale of 1:10 the main focus for us was on the experiment itself. Therefore the originals are not faithful copies; both materials and production processes were adapted. The miniatures can be built with or without instructions. Or you can make something entirely different from your kit and hack our design. What do you feel like doing?
