This is a Scale model of the Little Beaver Chair by Frank Gehry, designed in 1986. Unlike his 'Easy Edges' series which was intended as low cost seating suitable for mass production his 'Experimental Edges' was conceived as limited edition pieces (other designs included the Carumba and Bubbles chairs) which explored the expressive qualities of corrugated cardboard.

The distinguishing features of the Little Beaver Chair have been replicated here into a Vitra Miniature edition of the full-sized original. As part of the Vitra Design Museum collection miniature editions of classic chairs were produced 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.
