    Vitra Miniature Sitzmaschine Chair (Sitting Machine Chair) by Josef Hoffmann. This miniature reproduction has a height of only 4.25 inches.  This miniature reproduction of the original full-size chair is "almost" small enough to fit in the palm of your hand!  Around 1900, the Viennese architects discovered a new means of expression in the bentwood technique. To them, the simple forms of classic bentwood furniture - a consequence of industrial production - anticipated the new aesthetic clarity they were promoting. Josef Hoffmann's Armchair No 670 combines the austere elegance of bentwood with the expressive formal vocabulary of the Viennese Secession. Its somewhat voluminous form, strict geometry, and adjustable back are attributes that suggest associations with the machine.

    This miniature Sitzmaschine Chair by Josef Hoffmann is part of the Vitra Miniatures Collection made by the Vitra Design Museum and is available from Stardust with Free Shipping and a Low Price Guarantee

    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.
