    Eames La Chaise miniature chair by Vitra. Charles and Ray Eames designed La Chaise in 1948 for a competition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, inspired by "Floating Figure", a mid century modernist sculpture by artist Gaston Lachaise. It is the unbelievable elegance of this assertive seating sculpture that enables any number of sitting and reclining positions, which is so very appealing. It has long since established itself as an icon of Organic Design. The Eames La Chaise is one of the most sculptural chairs ever made and crosses the boundaries between art and design. 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.
