A museum shop that produces miniatures of its main exhibits is no surprise. But when it comes to Vitra Design Museum shop and the miniatures they produce, things are a liiiiitle different! Collector's items, chair & furniture miniatures, are an excellent gift for designers or design lovers.
As noted at the museums site:''...The chairs are all one sixth of the size of the historical originals. They are all true to scale and replicate the originals right down to the smallest details in construction, material and colour. Thus, not only have the design's key points been translated in the miniature versions, but details such as materials, the natural grain of the wood, the reproduction of screws and elaborate handicraft involved have also been taken into consideration...''
Well, if not the original, I would love one of those as a christmas gift...
