Information

This is a Scale model of the iconic Laminated Chair that was designed by Grete Jalk in 1963. This chair was Jalk's best known work and won first prize in a competition organised by the British newspaper the 'Daily Mail'. Unfortunately it never went into production and only a few pieces currently exist of the full scale chair which explains the high prices it has fetched at international auction. Even so, the origional Laminated Chair  marked a period in time when designers started to experiment with moulded plywood.

The distinguishing features of the full-sized Laminated Chair have been replicated here with this Vitra Miniature edition of the original. As part of the Vitra Design Museum collection miniature editions of classic chairs all were designed to display 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.
