What has inspired me is a dream to combine design and glamour.

Her elegance shines throughout the drawing of the feet of this sofa highlighting a special upholstery technique that simulate the movement of the dress.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
I started my research with Marilyn Monroe life story. I consider the moment of the "blowing dress" the perfect frame in time that emphasizes the sexiness, personality and irreverence of this amazing icon of Hollywood history. Then I had to focus my research on methods of production and upholstery techniques that could simulate her dress form. Finally I combined this technique with an elegant feet that transmit all the personality of Marilyn in a daily used home product.

CHALLENGE:
My main challenge on this project was to capture all the essence, elegance and personality of the amazing Marilyn Monroe in a seducing and comfortable piece.
