The Miniatures Collection, with its famous dollhouse designers chairsĀ is celebrating its birthday. Exactly 20 years ago, the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein began milestones of furniture design from its rich collection recreate in miniature form. As distillate history of industrial furniture design - from Historicism and the New Objectivity of the Bauhaus to the Radical Design, about postmodernism and finally to the present - the collection is far too grown more than 100 pieces. The chairs are reduced to scale to one-sixth and the historic original, out of respect to the finest in design, materials and Farbgebungsdetail simulated. So not only the formal points of the designs will be transferred to a smaller version, the attention to detail also applies to the materiality as the natural grain of wood, screws, or a replica of the elaborate hand production methods. All this makes the exhibits of miniatures collection of popular collectibles. It also offers cultural and design enthusiasts a glimpse into the history of our built environment.
