Miniature Chair - La Mamma (1:6 scale)

£305.00

Quantity
The original of the La Mamma was designed by Gaetano Pesce in 1969 and it is produced as 1:1 model by b & b italia, Milan/Italy since 1969 The 1:6 scale miniature consists of polyurethane foam and overlaid with a nylon jersey La Mamma (Donna) is completely in tune with the spirit of Pop Art and the Gaetano Pasce fondness for anthropomorphic shapes. The chair was actually designed to resemble a prehistoric, female fertility figure, with a ball attached to symbolise captivity. The unconventional nature of the shape also applies to the construction and marketing of the chair which was one of a series of six. Together they succeeded in marking a radical break from traditional upholstery production thanks to the technology developed by C & B Italia for creating oversized foam parts Donna consists of a moulded monoblock of foam without any supporting structure since the foam rubber is dense and free-standing

Miniature Chair - DSW (1:6 scale) Miniature Chair - DSW (1:6 scale)

Miniature Chair - DSW (1:6 scale)

£110.00

Quantity
The original Eames DSW Chair was designed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1950 and it is produced as 1:1 model by the Herman Miller Furniture Company, Zeeland/Michigan/USA and the Vitra International AG, Basel/Switzerland since 1957. This 1:6 scale miniature by Vitra consists of a synthetic material seat and a wood-wire frame with struts. The Fibreglass DSW Chair is a rare example of a satisfying synthesis of formal and technical innovation. For the first time in the history of design, Charles and Ray Eames utilised malleability of plastic for the development of a comfortable seating shell that corresponds to the shape of the human body. The idea of making a three-dimensional moulded shell goes back to a design from 1940. The original attempt to make the shell out of plywood was unsuccessful, due to the extreme conditions necessary to mould the material. Only with the advent of fibreglass technology was it possible to achieve satisfying results After years of experimentation, Charles and Ray Eames were able to realise their goal: an industrially produced chair that was inexpensive, sturdy, and comfortable. For ecological reasons the use of fibreglass was questioned and with recent advances in technology and materials, today the DSW Chair can be produced in the exact same shape but from polypropylene

Miniature Chair - La Chaise (1:6 scale) Miniature Chair - La Chaise (1:6 scale)

Miniature Chair - La Chaise (1:6 scale)

£215.00

Quantity
La Chaise was originally created as an entry for the Low-Cost Furniture Design competition held by the Museum of Modern Art in New York La Chaise consists of two paper-thin fiberglass shells glued to each other but separated by hard rubber discs; the intervening space was filled with polystyrene foam. Charles and Ray Eames left the plastic shell untreated. The base is made of five in part angled metal rods inserted into a cross-shaped wooden structure. The space left open between back and seat is not technically necessary, but instead purely a design element. The intention was to emphasise the chair’s light weight visually by perforating the otherwise large volume of the shell. The original La Chaise was designed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1948 and it is produced as 1:1 model by the Vitra International AG, Basel/Switzerland since 1991.This miniature by Vitra  is 1:6 scale and consists of fiberglass, an iron rod and lacquered wood
