The Miniatures Collection presents the most important classics of modern furniture history in miniature scale of 1 : 6. The construction, materials and colors correspond to the historical Vitra Design Museum collection original, right down to the last detail. Because they are so true to the originals, the miniatures are not only valuable collector's items, but also ideal illustrative material for universities, colleges of design and architects.
The Miniatures Collection is unique worldwide. For each miniature, there is a license agreement with the designer or their estate. Many designers collaborate with us to develop the miniatures of their own designs and offer their assistance by supplying information on the objects.
Among Frank Lloyd Wright's numerous seating designs, the Taliesin West Armchair, which exits in four variations, is one of the most unusual as well as
one of the most comfortable. Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for his own residence at Taliesin West, Scottsdale, Arizona, this unique and ergonomically
comfortable upholstered armchair was designed to be fabricated from a single panel of 4 foot x 8 foot laminated plywood.
The chair utilizes multiple geometric shapes including trapezoid interior/exterior side panels and 60 degree triangular shapes for the arms and legs.
