Brand

For more than two decades, the Vitra Design Museum has made miniature replicas of the most important pieces in its collection. The Miniatures Collection is a compendium of the history of industrial furniture design, from Historicism and Art Nouveau to Bauhaus and New Objectivity, from Radical Design and Postmodernism to the present day.
With a size that is exactly one sixth of that of the historical originals, the chairs are true to scale and reproduce every detail of construction, material and color. The authenticity reaches even the natural grain of the wood and the reproduction of the screws and the complex artisan techniques used. For this reason, miniatures have become very popular collectibles and ideal teaching materials for universities, design schools and architects.
Naharro furniture is Vitra's official distributor in its Madrid stores and online store.

Diseñador

George Nelson (1908-1986) was born in Hartford (Connecticut, USA). Study Architecture at Yale University. Between 1932 and 1934, a scholarship allows you to study at the American Academy of Rome. In Europe he makes contact with the works and the protagonists of the modern style. In 1935 he joins the writing of Architectural Forum, magazine in which he works until 1944.
A short time later, he was appointed design director of Herman Miller (until 1972), becoming a key figure of American design: tab to Charles and Ray Eames, Isamu Noguchi and Alexander Girard. In 1946 he runs his own design studio, creating works that are considered icons of the mid-century modern style. Your collaboration with Vitra starts at 1957.
Naharro furniture distributes the pieces designed by George Nelson in its stores in Madrid and online store, with delivery and assembly service throughout Spain. Ask us any additional information.
