Hans Hollein was an Austrian Architect who also studied extensively in the USA (Chicago and California). For me he rose to fame with Haas House in Vienna, just opposite the Stephansdome….he drew a lot of fuzz and critique when it was built, but now every Wiener is glad it mirrors the Stephansdome so nicely. He designed two sofa’s for Poltronova….one of them the Marilyn.
Just imagine the lady draped on this sofa…it would fit, wouldn’t it?

I found this sofa with different classic backrests at the IMM Cologne in 2015, but don’t know by whom.
At the occasion of the 2015 Biennale of Venice the Spanish paviljon paid a tribute to Salvador Dali where I found this hot lips sofa. The original was designed after Mae West’s lips by Dali in 1938.
