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.

Here the Marilyn Sofa has been replicated into a miniature version of the original. As part of the Vitra Design Museum collection, miniature editions of classic chairs were produced to from part of modern furniture design history.

The construction, materials and colours correspond to the historical Vitra Design Museum collection originals, right down to the last detail. Because they are so true to the originals, the miniatures are not only valuable collector's items, but also ideal illustrative materials for universities, design colleges and architects.
