This is a Scale model of the Womb Chair & Ottoman that was designed by Eero Saarinen in 1948 and regarded as one of the icons of postwar American Modernism. Manufactured by Knoll International since 1948, it was originally known as 'Model No 7' and was the first piece of mass produced furniture in the history of design with an integrated seat shell made of reinforced plastic.
The distinguishing features of the full-sized Womb Chair are replicated here in this Vitra Miniature edition of the original. As part of the Vitra Design Museum collection miniature editions of classic chairs were produced to form part of a modern furniture design history display. The construction, materials and colours of the miniatures 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.
