This is a Scale model of the Taliesin West Armchair that was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for his own residence at Taleisin West, Arizona. One of his more unusual designs, the original Taliesin West is a unique and comfortable upholstered armchair which is fabricated from a single panel of 4 foot x 8 foot laminated plywood and utilizes multiple geometric shapes.
The Vitra Design Museum edited this miniature of the Taliesin West in cooperation with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, which features in the current exhibition in the Guggenheim Museum, NY.
As part of the Vitra Design Museum collection, miniature editions of classic chairs like this Taliesin West Armchair Miniature all form part of modern furniture design history. The construction, materials and colours correspond to the historical Vitra Design Museum collection originals, right down to the last detail.
Because they are so true to the originals, the miniatures are not only valuable collector's items, but also ideal illustrative materials for universities, design colleges and architects.
