Michael Yurkovic first trained as an industrial designer, before transitioning his experience with consumer electronics, toys, games, and home healthcare appliances to creating mid-century modern miniatures. In 2013, he started Atomic Miniature. Following in the footsteps of his favorite designers, Charles and Ray Eames, Eero Saarinen, and George Nelson, he strives to match their materials and techniques. He even uses vacuum forming to mold 1:12 scale plastic pieces!
Yurkovic’s current portfolio of work encompasses furniture, accessories, and vignettes that typify mid-century modern and atomic age styles. Recently, Yurkovic collaborated with another artist to create a commissioned replica of Mindy Lahiri’s office from the television show The Mindy Project. Intrigued?!
