Developed by the Vitra Design Museum in Germany, these collectible miniatures painstakingly replicate important chairs in the development of twentieth-century furniture design, many of which are represented in MoMA's collection. Boasting an airy, organic form, the Vegetal by brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec was modeled after trees in 19th-century gardens that were pruned carefully into functional furniture. Sold as a set of three, each of these miniature chairs is reproduced at a scale of 1:6 in the original materials and arrives packed in a wooden "shipping crate" with a descriptive brochure.

Ronan & Erwan Bourollec
Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec are brothers and designers based in Paris who have been working together since the mid-90s. Their work consists of a wide range of designs, including furniture, home accents and tech. The earliest design by Erwan and Ronan Bouroullec in MoMA’s collection, the Square Vase, was created in 1999. Since then, several designs by the brothers have been added to the collection, and the MoMA Design Store regularly seeks out the latest examples of their designs, such as the Belleville Chair, a piece that manifests their core attributes of minimalism paired with elegance.
