Alone in a Crowd
511 miniature figurines from all walks of life, genders, and ages walk alone in a crowd just under the surface of a clear table top by London-based designer Rolf Sachs. From the designer: “Barely any of the figures interact with the exception of society’s crucial units, such as families, couples and lovers. From afar, one sees only groups and crowds yet when seen up-close, you recognize that each figure is entirely individual and you can discover random and humorous frames of everyday life.” It's like an overhead diorama locked inside a coffee table, I truly love it!
