Vitra Miniatures Noguchi Rocking Stool

For over two decades, the Vitra Design Museum has been making miniature replicas of milestones in furniture design from its collection.

Exactly one sixth the size of the historical originals, the chairs are all true to scale and precisely recreate the smallest details of construction, material and colour. The high standard of authenticity even extends to the natural grain of the wood, the reproduction of screws and the elaborate handicraft techniques involved. This has made the miniatures into popular collector's items as well as ideal illustrative material for universities, design schools and architects.

Without box.

Isamu Noguchi (Japans: 野口 勇, Noguchi Isamu) (Los Angeles, 17 november 1904 – New York, 30 december 1988) was a Japanese-American sculptor. He was the son of the Japanese poet Yone Noguchi and the American writer Leonie Gilmour.
