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. The T. Vac Chair (1999) was first realized as one element in a sculpture consisting of 70 stacking chairs named "Totem." Commissioned by the magazine Domus, it was set up in the centre of Milan during the Salone del Mobile in 1997. The seat shell with the characteristic wave profile is based on earlier versions Ron Arad sketched for the dining room of a house in Tel Aviv. Seen within the context of Arad's complete work, which is largely characterized by "one offs," the chair is something of an innovation by virtue of its industrial and by extension inexpensive production. Each Vitra miniature comes handsomely packaged in a wood box with an informational booklet.
