"Bocca/Zanker" (2005) features a sofa placed on top of a freezer, created by Italian designers Studio 65 based on Salvador Dali’s famous sofa of 1935, which was his tribute to Mae West's lips, and itself inspired by a work by Man Ray.

This combination of objects explores the system of placing a sculpture on a base without detracting from the aesthetics and symbolism inherent in the objects themselves: the cold, clinical material of the freezer in opposition to the sofa’s warm sensuality.
