London is one of the world’s oldest great cities. It grew from three centres: the Roman settlement in the 1st century on the northern banks of the Thames, now known as “the City”; Southwark on the southern banks; and Westminster upstream. London expanded rapidly. The Great Fire of 1666 led to the proposal of many radical rebuilding schemes but these came to little. Instead London was rebuilt piecemeal driven by capitalism and housing demands. London’s population passed one million by 1800 and had reached 6.5 million a century later. Its structure is immensely complicated and there is little discernible form. Unsurprisingly it is not characterised by any particular architectural style with its buildings having been amassed over such a long period of time.

This 3d map of London, at a scale of 1:5000, is of “the City” – London’s hub of trade, commerce, and banking. It is a single resin tile measuring 30x30cm encapsulated in an oak frame. The model can wall hang or be displayed on a desk or table top.

Sustainably Crafted

We all want the world to be a better place. We are trying to do our bit. We reuse, recycle and use less where we can. We search out sustainable local suppliers. We sponsor grassroots sports for the local youth, donating both money and time. We sponsor local environmental projects. We know we can do more but we're making a start!

Handmade

We hand make all of our models. Chisel & Mouse is the combination of an artisan’s approach (the chisel) with modern innovation and transformative technologies (the mouse). By capturing life and its big ideas in miniature, the brand celebrates the beauty of our industrialised world.
