The Miniatures Collection encapsulates the entire history of industrial furniture design – moving from Historicism and Art Nouveau to the Bauhaus and New Objectivity, from Radical Design and Postmodernism all the way up to the present day.
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.
In the second half of the 19th-century bentwood firms began to manufacture rocking chairs which, as a symbol of leisure and relaxation, corresponded to the need of the bourgeoisie for an appropriate level of comfort.
Around 1882 the firm of Jacob & Josef Kohn put a model onto the market that differentiated distinctly from earlier rocking chairs. A double loop, which clearly stands out against the framework, unites the supporting functions on either side. As a result of the back-leg-like supports of the prototypes like the Thonet rocking chair being replaced by a smaller bentwood loop at the back, the construction of the chair takes on an elegant and weightless appearance. The firm, founded in 1867, had initially mainly copied Thonet furniture. Innovatory drafts, such as the Rocking Chair No. 9, helped the business to develop its own original style.
