Design Porn: MONUmini


I've been very into mini architecture recently. Paper Tango and Chisel & Mouse have captured my love of gorgeous and iconic buildings and put them into miniature form for me to enjoy. Just when I thought I couldn't get any more London models to adorn my desk, Aimee Furnival has wowed me with MONUmini.


MONUmini models are made of sheet metal. They come with assembly instructions, like the prettiest Ikea ever. Then it's your job to play architect and put them together. No glue or screws needed - everything just slots together.

I'm not the biggest fan of 70s architecture, but The Barbican Tower is very popular with locals. If you recognise the name Aimee Furnival, it's because she's the lady behind Postcarden and Matchcarden and she got involved with our Paper & Penmanship event last year. I think her brain works most in flat pack.


I need a MONUmini Tower Bridge! It's so wonderful. I expected that something so intricate would be mega  expensive, but the prices are as mini as the models - each one is just £15. You can buy the designs from Another Studio. My Monopoly board is about to get a bit of a makeover.
