As the name suggests, Vitra Miniature Furniture refers to the collection of mini replicas of some of Vitra’s most iconic pieces, the work heralded as milestones in modern design like the Barcelona Chair, for example. The collection is meant to encapsulate the evolution of industrial design and its many phases, and each miniature is precisely one-sixth the size of the original.
Despite the small size, each miniature is designed to be true to scale, capturing all of the meticulous details when it comes to the color, the material, and the construction. The strict attention to detail and high standards extends to the grain of the wood, the handicraft techniques, even the reproduction of screws are intended to remain entirely faithful to the larger original. It’s this rigid attention to detail that has made the Vitra Miniature Furniture collection popular items for collectors and enthusiasts as well as universities and design schools needing illustrative reference material.
