"Home Is Bear the Heart Is" by Mister Peebles
Small things are satisfying — what else explains an obsession with doll houses or with Japanese miniature foodsets? These tiny miniature rooms, part of the Victoria & Albert Museum's Small Stories exhibition and on view starting this week, nicely scratch the itch for small. Twenty London-based designers, including Roger Arquer and Bethan Wood, were given a 30 centimeter square wooden box and told to create their dream rooms.
Curator Alice Sage told Dezeen that she asked the designers "to reflect on the idea of 'ideal' or 'fantasy' rooms," and the results range from the realistic, like Molly Meg's whimsical "Molly's Favourite Things," which resembles a child's bedroom, to PearsonLloyd's Mondrian-meets-Mario "If you don't know where you are going, any road will get you there…." But they all one thing: They're all rooms we'd like to step inside, even if just for a second.
