Scale model of Fernando & Humberto Campana's Favela Chair is one of the Brazilian designer's most striking works. The Favela Chair is named after the typical shanty towns that inspired its design in the brother's native country.

Nailed and glued together from oddments and waste materials the Favela proves that objects of singular elegance and beauty can originate from apparently mundane, worthless materials. As part of the Vitra Design Museum collection these miniature editions of classic chairs all form part of modern furniture design history. Although every chair is made from the same material and to an identical construction plan, each finished article retains its own individuality.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.
