This is a Scale model of the Aluminium Chair by Charles & Ray Eames, designed in 1958. This chair formed part of the 'Aluminium Group' of chairs, designed for domestic use indoors and outdoors. Ironically it is now mostly used in office applications.
The distinguishing features of the Aluminium Chair have been replicated here into a Vitra Miniature edition of the full-sized original. As part of the Vitra Design Museum collection miniature editions of classic chairs were produced to celebrate modern furniture design history. The construction, materials and colours correspond to the historical Vitra Design Museumcollection 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.
