Description

Each handmade Vitra miniature is a classic in the history of furniture design reduced in size at a scale of 1:6. True to the original pieces in structure and materials, the miniatures are precision-crafted, making them a thoughtful gift for a furniture lover or design professional. Danish designer Hans J. Wegner preferred to work in solid wood, but occasionally he explored the use of bent plywood. Sometimes called the "smiling chair," his Shell Chair (1963) achieves a floating lightness due to its wing-like seat and the arching curves of its tapered legs. Wegner's belief that a chair "should be beautiful from all sides and angles" is especially evident with his Shell Chair. Each Vitra miniature comes handsomely packaged in a wood box with an informational booklet.
