This is a scale model of the original Stuhl W1 by Mart Stam, which was constructed 1926 using sawn-off gas pipes which Stam linked with elbow butting. This was unlike the prototype, the 'Arnold' chair, which was made from a single piece of tubular steel and solid iron rods which lacked any springiness. In 1927 Stam had his design produced by the L. & C. Arnold company and was featured in their sales program for a year.

The distinguishing features of Mart Stam's break-though Stuhl W1 chair have been replicated here with this Vitra Miniature Stuhl W1, a miniature model of the original full-sized chair. As part of the Vitra Design Museum collection miniature editions of classic chairs were produced to form part of modern furniture design history.The construction, materials and colours of the miniatures all 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.
