    Miniature Paimio Chair by Vitra. Shop Vitra's mini-sized 4-inch sleek & sculptural Finnish design classic; the 1931 Aalto Paimio (mod. 41) chairs (bentwood) created by Hugo Alvar Henrik Aalto (Finland b. 1898) for the Vitra Miniatures Chairs Collection on sale at Stardust. Mini-sized desktop/shelf edition (1:6 architectural scale model) of Aalto's original Paimio Sanatorium chair. Alvar Aalto designed the Paimio chair in 1932-33, which revolutionized both the aesthetics and technology of modern furniture design. The arms are constructed of layers of bent laminated birch while the Aalto Paimio chair seat is molded from a single piece of birch plywood. The profile of the Paimio chair is nothing less than striking. Although this chair is generally referred to as the "Paimio Chair", it was not produced specially for the sanitorium at Paimio as the name would indicate. It received its name because it was developed during the period when Alvar Aalto was working on the design of the sanitorium. 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.
