Farnsworth House is the ultimate modernist pavilion with its floor to ceiling glass and minimal structural framework. It was designed by Mies Van der Rohe and completed in 1951. It sits on a 55 acre site outside of Chicago and next to the Fox River. It was designed as a "get away" for the poet and physician Edith Farnsworth. Despite the buildings critical acclaim the structure proved impractical; constantly too hot or too cold, lacking in privacy and susceptible to flooding! We love the building and are very proud of our reproduction.

I was in Florence one month ago !The model is absolutely amazing and reminds me of everything I saw in this incredible city
Model received safe and sound. Another superb one!
Chisel and Mouse are one of the most innovate and interesting companies to emerge in the last few years. The models are superb, intricately detailed, and a joy to have. I’m on my 7th, with an 8th on the way. For those with a love of architectural models, made with a real love of the craft, and delivered with a highly professional service, these pieces are second only having to the real thing.
I got the models and they are awesome!!!!. The product, wrapping and service delivery were excellent. Thank you so much.
Just opened my birthday present. A fantastic replica of Broadcasting House by G.Val Myer and I couldn't be more delighted. My partner tells me the company were super helpful. The sculpture is a perfect replica of substantial weight and quality build. It will be taking up residency in my Radio Museum in Watchet as the only 3 dimensional representation of this iconic building.Its just perfect! Thank you Chisel and Mouse.
The models are amazing. I am ordering another 4.
As always what a beautiful piece and speedy delivery.
