Car for One

In Japan, you can find anything and everything in miniature. Isn’t this car cute? Don’t you just love its tapered profile? What about the jaunty way its steering wheel sits front and center? And it only needs one windshield wiper! Not to mention the ambidextrous doors — also a pretty cool feature. I have seen a few of these vehicles parked around town but I have yet to see one in motion.

I have always had an affinity for scale, even before I began thinking about the relative size of things professionally. Once I succumbed to a giant Oreo cookie (ceramic) at Think Big in Soho (what ever happened to that store?). But in Japan, where space is limited, small stuff rules.
