With the real Guggenheim in our sights during our visit May 14-18 for New York City’s annual design fest, we want to share how absolutely mad we are for the architectural models by Brit brothers Robert and Gavin Paisley.
The duo ditched their business developing back-office systems software and opened a studio in the quaint village of Nutley next to Ashdown Forest for their new life in model making—and are doing it under the equally quirky name Chisel & Mouse.
The “Chisel” comes from the traditional plaster-cast methods; the “Mouse” from the computer-aided design (CAD) technology and 3-D printing. We’re not their only fans: this month’s Vanity Fair dedicated a full page to them. Bravo!
