This is a SCALE MODEL of the original Barrel Chair, originally designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for the D.D. Martin House in Buffalo, New York. The Barrel Chair was a departure from the designers previous linear works, due to it's round shape.

Original features iof the BARREL CHAIR include a flared backrest, square spindle supports and a cushioned double-sided circular seat. The Vitra Design Museum edited it into this miniature 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, the Miniature Barrel Chair and other miniature editions of classic chairs all form part of modern furniture design history. With these, 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.
