Set of Six Marilyn Dining Chairs by Arata Isozaki

About

Rare set of six "Marilyn" chairs by renowned Japanese architect Arata Isozaki. The curved design of the back of this chair was inspired by the body shape of Marilyn Monroe, hence the name. Strikingly curvaceous framework of black ebonized solid birch with black leather seats. Slatted back and routed detail along outside let. Surprisingly comfortable! The back design is extremely ergonomic and suited for extended periods of time. The Marilyn chair was created for use in the executive offices of a Japanese bank. Part of the permanent collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. These chairs are in very vintage condition with light wear expected from age and use. Minor touch ups have been made to the black ebonized finish. General wear, scratches and a few marks to black leather seats.
