Vitra Miniatures Collection: LC7 Swivel Stool
Designed by Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand, produced by Vitra Design Museum
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. The LC7 Swivel Chair (1928) evolved from one of a number of experiments, including an attempt to fashion a chair by wrapping inner tubes from tires around a steel frame and debuted at Salon d'Automne in 1929. As the Le Corbusier group refined such trials, a sensuous solution took form. A round, thickly padded seat rests on top of a curving claw-like base of tubular steel that resolves in a swivel mechanism, giving the seat pad a buoyant look. A curved, amply padded barrel, doubling as backrest and chair arms, links three tubular steels supports that fuse at the seat base. The result has become one of modernism's most familiar icons. Each Vitra miniature comes handsomely packaged in a wood box with an informational booklet.
