Milano designweek 2014: Miniatures

Mimi Berlin noticed a mini trend: Miniatures. We have to be honest we only saw mini furniture at Dutch exhibitions so it really isn’t a trend, it’s an ienie mini trend or maybe just something the Dutch are interested in. At Lensvelt the designs by Maarten van Severen were miniaturized, since Lensvelt produces the furniture by the Belgian designer it can be a logical move to show them in a small size. Moooi showcased black miniatures in the hallway to the actual exhibition, where everything was larger than life and very colorful. We guess Moooi was looking for a contradiction. At Supermodels, a travelling exhibition about product design, architecture and interior architecture initiated by Concern, we saw an overview of 3D printed chairs in white by Dutch designers. Also they made a complete miniature sized design dollhouse in full color! Fun! The maquettes or scale models (1:18) of houses designed by Dutch archtitects shown at Supermodels can’t be counted in as miniatures because they are functional design devices. But these scale models were the only accountability for showing miniature furniture in white.
