This is a Scale model of the La Mamma Chair designed by Gaetano Pesce in 1969. Compressed and vacuum packed in PVC wrappers, La Mamma literally bounced to life when unwrapped. Described by the designer as 'transformation' furniture, these iconic designs turned the act of purchasing a chair into a 'happening'.

Here, La Mamma has been replicated into a miniature version of the full-sized original.

As part of the Vitra Design Museum collection miniature editions of classic chairs were designed to celebrate 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.
