MINITHOUGHT - I am back and still here!

Added on by martine nicolay.

I have been avoiding this post for quite some time and I think I am finally ready to write it.

For the last 3 months, we are waiting to leave Rome and move to Dakar, Senegal. My husband is switching work station and we plan to move out to Africa for the next few years. After Laos and Rome, we were wishing for an african experience and we got it... or will get it.

For now we are stuck in Rome... well there are worse places to be "stuck" in! To be honest Matthieu and I have been on a roman vacation for the last few months. Léonore has been spoiled with family play time every day - and our daily strolls or bike rides usually start or end with a gelato! 

Additionally,  I have been working on some very exciting projects - for and with highly creative people and I cannot wait to share them with you here on MINITECTURE. Please stay tuned for more! 

For the weekend, I will leave you with this MINITECTURE-toy - perfect for little world travellers and big architecture lovers : the Mitoi series

Mitoi travels to NYC, London, Paris and Asia to bring us Miworld! Children can let their imagination run wild touring the world. Miworld comprises the Eiffel Tower, the Big Ben, the Empire State Building and an Asian pagoda.

"I would like children to learn the relation between colors and form and to learn something about their urban landscape and the buildings closest to them”, said Marc Castelló, founder and designer of Mitoi.

Mitoi has launched two collections of colourful building blocks: Miworld and Miciti. 

Miciti collection is composed by iconic buildings from Barcelona. You’ll find the Sagrada Família, the W Hotel, the Agbar Tower, the Mapfre Tower and the Hotel Arts Tower.
