Scale model of the Butterfly Stool by Sori Yanagi, designed in 1954. This was seen as a design fusing western and eastern cultures and was favoured in America in the 1950's because of it's ease to dismantle and transport.

As part of the Vitra Design Museum collection these miniature editions of classic chairs all form part of 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.
