Mies van der Rohe - Miniature - MR 90 Barcelona (1929)
This chair is among the 5 most iconic design chairs of all time. It was designed by the father of minimalist modern architecture and design, Mies Van Der Rohe.
This Vitra collectible miniature design chair is constructed to the exact specifications of the original, right down to the last detail. Because each miniature modern chair is so true to the original, the miniature chair is not only a valuable collector "item or decorative item, but also an ideal illustrative material for universities, colleges of design and architects. The Vitra miniatures collection presents the most important classics of modern furniture history in miniature scale.
For this chair Mies took as his starting point the ancient, scissors-shaped collapsible folding chair, already a symbol of power among Egyptian rulers. In keeping with the occasion, he adopted the representative qualities of the scissors chair, although he does without the folding function and interprets it afresh.
