    We have a soft spot for the nostalgic charm of snow globes (not to mention things in miniature), so imagine our glee when we first spotted Shannnam's Fragmented Chronicles, a series of mini-world rings which showcases adorable, tiny landscapes. The Hong Kong-based duo, Chan Oi Yau Riyo and Kwong Ho Sun Howard introduced their whimsical creations to the world at Tokyo DesignBoom Mart as part of this year's Tokyo's Design Week.

Pick up your own mini-world at M O O I in Hong Kong, or stay tuned, as their online shop is scheduled to open at the end of this month, and will accept international orders. (DesignBoom)
