Monolith — by Gioia Meller Marcovicz


The designer abandoned her high-flying career in fashion in 1982 at the age of 36


to start all over again with steel and glass.


Her stainless steel Monolith (pictured above and below)


measures 45cm x 74cm x 250cm (18" x 29" x 98") closed.


It transforms from a long, slim sculpture into a dining table and 10 chairs.


The seats fold up and slot into the table when not in use.


The mirror-polished table top measures 90cm x 250cm (35" x 98").

Apply within.

Had a date once tell me, "He's Stainless Steel"??? No normal person could withhold asking what she meant. She said, very beautiful to look at, but stark cold emotionally, like a mirror, only giving back what it sees/hears/feels!

It looks like Frank Lloyd Wright's dining sets: pretty, but inconceivably uncomfortable.

Oh wait, someone just said that. Nevermind.

Looks amazing. I'll bet you anything though that your back and bum will disagree on the accolade.
