The Vitra Design Museum’s miniature collection sees the most important classics of modern furniture history recreated in miniature form. The construction, materials and colours ably replicate the historical originals, right down to the most minute of details. The Vitra Miniature Womb Chair & Ottoman is a perfect example of just how extensive this attention to detail is, with the miniature chair covered in the same fabric as its full-size sibling, and the fittings and finish reproduced in minute detail.
Finnish-American architect Eero Saarinen (1910-1961) was incredibly influential in shaping the postwar American modern design movement. Born in Finland Eero Saarinen was the son of architect Eliel Saarinen, one of the founders of the Cranbrook Academy of Art.
