News: "The ant" with, the original 3 legs

The shell of the miniatures are constructed of 4 layers of sl iced beech veneer and 2 layers of cotton canvas. The painting process is similar to the one applied to the original fullscale chair. The frame and the other parts consist of the same materials as the famous chairs and for that purpose special tools are developed. The small-scale models are not only a faithful replica, it also "feels" like the originals.

Both miniature chairs are available in natural beech and lacquer shades: black, white, red, blue, yellow, light grey and lime.

Each miniature chair is delivered in a specially designed box, with a 16 page colour leaflet, summarizing briefly about the archicture and design of Arne Jacobsen,.

The model chairs are ideal for miniature enthusiasts, designers, architects and furniture lovers - indeed for all, who care for and cherish beautiful design!

Arne Jacobsen chair Arne Jacobsen´s designs came into existence as brief sketches and were then modelled in plaster or cardboard in full size. He kept on working until his revolutionary ideas for new furniture had been realized at the utmost perfection. The "Ant" from 1952 became the starting point of his world fame as a furniture designer and was the first of a number of lightweight chairs with seat and back in one piece of moulded wood.
