A Rare and Unique Sofa by Austrian Designer Hans Hollein - Named after Marilyn Monroe.

Designed by the post-modern Austrian designer Hans Hollein, born in Vienna in 1934, who also collaborated with Sottsass during the Memphis period. This one-of-a-kind sofa was produced in a limited edition by Poltronova in the 1980s and named after Marilyn Monroe. It features a birdseye maple veneer frame and original fabrics from the 1980s, making it a true masterpiece of design.

Hollein was a prominent figure in the postmodern architecture and design movement of the 1980s, which rejected the austere simplicity of modernism and embraced a more eclectic and playful approach to design. The "Marilyn" sofa exemplifies this postmodern sensibility, with its sensuous curves, pop culture references, and playful attitude.

Today, the "Marilyn" sofa is considered a classic of postmodern design, and is sought after by collectors and design enthusiasts. It is also on display in the permanent collections of several prominent museums, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
