Vitra Miniature 1970 Marilyn Sofa

Special Price £225.25 Regular Price £265.00

This is a Scale model of the Marilyn Sofa by Studio 65, designed in 1970. The chair was named after Marilyn Monroeand pays homage to Salvado Dali's earlier 'Mae West' sofa of 1936 and, as such, can be seen as an early example of Redesign. With its anti-establishment connotations, Surrealism was highly influential to the 1960s and 1970s Anti-Design movement. Inspiration for this quintessential Pop design may also have come from Andy Warhol's collection of silkscreens.
