    Vitra Miniature Panton Chair Set by Verner Panton. Each miniature reproduction has a height of only 5.5 inches.  This miniature reproduction of the original full-size Panton Chair is small enough to fit in the palms of both your hands!  Inspired by Pop Art and Pop Culture, 1960 furniture design broke with the purism of modern functionalism. The use of new materials liberated furniture from the constraints of traditional structures and made it possible for designers to play imaginatively with form and color. At international furniture exhibitions, designers like Verner Panton presented futuristic-looking interior landscapes to go with a free and easy, hedonistic lifestyle. Verner Panton wrote of his works: "I try to forget existing examples, even if they are well made, and find my own way of coming to terms with the materials. The result seldom has four legs, not because I do not want to make a chair but because working with new materials like wire mesh and polyester demands new forms". The Panton Chair is regarded today as one of the classics of modern furniture design. It was the first chair in design history to have no back legs and be moulded in one piece entirely out of plastic. It took nearly 12 years of development work before the idea could be put into practice.

    This Vitra miniature chair ships in a small wooden Vitra box which is perfect for storage or display. This Vitra collectible miniature design chair is constructed to the exact specifications of the original but at a much smaller scale of 1:6. The construction, materials and colors correspond to the historical Vitra Design Museum collection original, right down to the last detail. Because each miniature modern chair is so true to the original, the miniature chair is not only a valuable collector’s item, but also an ideal illustrative material for universities, colleges of design and architects. The Vitra miniatures collection present the most important classics of modern furniture history in miniature scale. The miniature collection is unique worldwide.

    The Vitra Design Museum collection includes a fascinating collection of over 224 miniature modern chairs which are all icons of modern furniture.  As a kind of summary of the history of industrial furniture design – moving from historicism and art nouveau to the new objectivity of Bauhaus and radical design, and from postmodernism all the way up until the present day – the Vitra Miniature Chair collection has grown to include more than 100 pieces. 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. All of this has made the pieces in the Miniatures Collection into popular collector’s items. At the same time they provide people who are interested in culture and design with insights into the history of the environments that we create.
