Description

Los Angeles' historic downtown is in the midst of a vast revival and Chisel & Mouse's architectural model brings it to life in 1:5000 scale. Modern high-rises mix with architectural landmarks in this finely detailed 3D resin-plaster tile. Hand-cast in the UK and encased in a plexiglass shadow-box frame—and, incidentally, a stunning salute to A+R's own hometown—this collectible can be hung on a wall or be displayed on a desk or tabletop.

“We wouldn’t presume to think of ourselves as artists,” Robert Paisley says. “We call ourselves draftsmen; the architect is the artist.” A bit of an understatement for Robert and brother Gavin, who fled an office-software business for their creative venture Chisel & Mouse. With both traditional plaster-cast methods (the “Chisel”) and today’s 3-D printing and computer-aided design (“Mouse”), not to mention Google Earth and satellite data, they turn out painstakingly accurate architectural models. The smooth white plaster replicas of such landmarks as the Bauhaus Dessau and New York’s Guggenheim Museum are stylish and also quite personal, adds Robert. “I love the idea of immortalizing a place that’s special to people.”
