About 1:16 Mini Museum

From flat to 3-dimensional

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.



平たい印刷物を切って立ち上げるだけで、そこに空間が生まれて小さなジオラマになります。その楽しみを、世界の椅子とそれが生まれた背景のインテリアを通して再現するのが 1:16 ミニ・ミュージアムの使命です。

At this moment, the following chairs and interiors are under development.  This Mini Museum is growing in number little by little, all the time.
