Sleek Architecture Enamel Pins Let You Wear the World’s Most Famous Buildings

Enamel Lapel Pins

Pagoda House in Tel Aviv, Israel

An enamel pin is a perfect way to commemorate the things that you love. These small accessories allow you to outwardly express your appreciation for just about anything—including a beloved artistethereal fictional characters, or perhaps a memorable vacation. For the past five years, a husband and wife duo known as Drop a Pin have traveled the world and documented their favorite buildings. “About a year ago we were looking for a pin of a building we liked,” they tell My Modern Met, “and when we couldn't find one, we decided to join forces and create it ourselves.”

The Drop a Pin couple work as an architect and graphic designer, and they used their keen design sense to produce eye-pleasing flair that celebrates minimalism. The Eames House pin, for instance, is reminiscent of a Mondrian painting with a gridded building that has accents of primary colors. They’ve also created a design featuring Tokyo's Nakagin Capsule Tower. It's a recognizable yet simplified version of the post-war architectural movement pairing man-made structures with biological-inspired growth. All of their designs are sure to stand out on your favorite jacket or backpack.

Drop a Pin is currently accepting pre-orders for six of their enamel lapel pin designs on Indiegogo.

Take some of the world's most famous buildings with you when you wear them as enamel lapel pins.
