Fernando Setién

Miniature maker

A fully trained and experienced carpenter, with a childhood passion for building wooden toys, Fernando Setién taught himself to make miniature furniture as a career change resulting from the recent economic crisis. He focuses on making replicas as well as his own designs, generally at 1:12 scale. By applying his carpentry skills, experimenting and adapting materials, and even devising a technique of steam bending wood, Fernando rises to the challenge of miniaturising, choosing the right materials and wood grain to best suit each project. Inspired by architecture, modern and industrial design, he works with ingenuity and patience and never ceases to learn on the job.
