Sheyn Spearheads Growth of #TinyArchitecture Movement

The future of architecture can fit in the smallest room of your apartment. For decades, avant-garde architects have fussed over the tiniest details of furniture and fixtures. But this obsession with designing for the smallest spaces has now collided with the democratization of modern technologies like open source 3D modeling and printing to produce a new kind of architecture that can fit in the palm or your hand (or the corner or your coffee table).

The undisputed headquarters or this movement is Vienna, where leaders in the field of architecture like Zaha Hadid have tutored aspiring students, on the ins and outs of designing shrunken forms, whilst creating their own jewelry and skyscrapers. Nicolas Gold, co-founder of Sheyn, had his start in Zaha’s classroom. In 2016, with his business co-founder, Markus Schaffer, they launched Sheyn, a studio dedicated to tiny architecture, producing jewelry, homeware and furniture.

Since then, Sheyn has sold furniture, homeware and jewelry across the world. This year the studio opened its flagship store in Vienna as a hub for the growing tiny architecture movement. The new multifaceted space allows for display, production and the sharing of ideas. When orders come in from around the world, they are immediately printed in the store. This means effectively zero inventory and little to no waste.

Nico and Markus look forward to realizing expansion plans and continuing to innovate the production processes of PLA, printable concrete and silver in the new year.
