miniature mouse café and nut shop pops-up on a street corner in malmö

 

in the swedish town of malmö, incognito art collective anonymouse has added a tiny mouse-sized scenery to the corner of bergsgatan and almbacksgatan streets. built into the side of an ordinary building is a miniature nut shop named ‘noix de vie’ and an italian bistro called ‘il topolino’, complete with storefront windows, café tables, menus and food. ‘the people of malmö seem to have taken it to heart, and almost immediately miniature things started to show up on the scene — club posters, cheeses, all kinds of plastic animals and much more,’ the team describe. ‘some even bring their pet rodents there!’

the miniature installation by anonymouse has been built by hand from a variety of found objects — including bottle caps, wire, tin cans, matches, italian stamps, and a lamp shade. near-microscopic details are both curious and charming: a menu board on the restaurant’s façade shows a selection of cheese on offer; small frames inside the store window display the café’s famous rodent visitors; while inside the nut shop, an array of almost imperceptible flags highlights an international display of items. the tiny scenography invites pedestrians and passers-by to stop and smile at the curious mini-café hidden on an ordinary street corner.
