About 1:16 Mini Museum, News & greetings

1:16 Mini Museum was launched, in November 2014.
16分の1 ミニ・ミュージアムは2014年11月に発売になりました。

Hello world!  After 3 years of preparation, the first two products from this on-going “1:16 Mini Museum” are released.



< the aim of 1:16 Mini Museum>

A flat printed material can be cut out and assembled on your desk top – then you realise there is a small diorama around it.  Our mission as curators of the 1:16 mini museum is to deliver this little wonder through a history of chairs and their associated interiors.

It might be difficult to own the real historical chairs – but you can reconstruct a tiny corner of a room and enjoy the history of the chair and interior with this ‘mini museum’!

フラットな印刷物を切り取り折り曲げると、そこに立体が生まれて周りに小さな空間が立ち上がる。そんな紙で作るジオラマの楽しみを、椅子とそれが生まれた背景のインテリアを通してお届けするのが 1:16 ミニ・ミュージアムの使命です。
