Vitra Miniature Armchair with Reclining Backrest

Alongside partners Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand, Le Corbusier designed the Fauteuil a Dossier Basculant as a visitor's armchair that had a light appearance, yet was exceedingly comfortable. The backrest was attached to the tubula...r steel frame with two hinges, making it supportive yet flexible. The Vitra Miniature Armchair with Reclining Backrest demonstrates this unique functionality, but at 1:6 scale. Founded in Switzerland in 1950, Vitra produces intelligent and inspiring furniture and accessories for the home, office and other public spaces. Ever mindful of the importance of sustainability in design, Vitra creates furnishings with high quality and versatile style that ensures functional and aesthetic enjoyment for the long term. The Miniature Armchair with Reclining Backrest is available with the following: Details: 1:6 scale model Made of steel, leather Made by hand in Poland Comes packaged in wood box Includes informational booklet Originally designed by Le Corbusier, 1928 Dimensions: Item: Height 3.75", Width 3.75", Depth 4.25" More Information: The Vitra Miniatures Collection was conceived to tell the entire story of industrial furniture design. As such, it features dozens of scale models representing furniture icons from the early 19th century through today. Exactly 1/6 the size of the historical designs upon which they?re based, these miniatures use the same construction, materials and colors. Every last detail is faithfully recreated, making these pieces useful not only as valuable collector?s items, but as accurate illustrative material for universities, colleges of design and architects. For every miniature, there is an official license agreement with the designer or their estate, and Vitra honors the designer?s copyright by paying royalties. Need help with some of our terminology?
