Each handmade Vitra miniature is a classic in the history of furniture design reduced in size at a scale of 1:6. True to the original pieces in structure and materials, the miniatures are precision-crafted, making them a thoughtful gift for a furniture lover or design professional. George Nelson once said: “Total design is nothing more or less than a process of relating everything to everything.” So it makes perfect sense that, in 1955, Nelson related a lounge chair to a coconut. Intended to combine comfort with freedom of movement, the shape of the Coconut Chair’s white molded shell was inspired by the shape of Eero Saarinen’s Kresge Auditorium at MIT. Echoing both the auditorium’s triangular shape, as well as a portion of coconut shell, the Chair’s unique form invites a number of different seating positions. The shell sits upon a chromed-steel base with three thin legs. A single-piece foam cushion, upholstered in high-quality semi-aniline leather, is molded into the shell. One has the impression that the frame holds the floating, swinging form taut and fixes it to the floor. Each Vitra miniature comes handsomely packaged in a wood box with an informational booklet.
