He contrasts polished, stylish commercial design with highly poetic objects with an archaic feel to them.
In the framework of the »Vitra Edition« he created the »Well Tempered Chair«. Its form is not the product of artificially shaping the sheet steel but is instead generated by screwing the tensile sheets into arches. Given its flexibility, the spring steel always bounces back into its original shape. The armchair is therefore not just a brilliant formal idea but also conveys a completely new feel for sitting. Ron is famous for delivering endless curves in his designs and expressing movement through them.

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.
