With its rounded, robust, and yet soft appearance, the Aztec sofa offers a reassuring feeling of security as it embraces you from all sides. The year is 1981. IBM introduces the first personal computer to the consumer market, Ronald Reagan starts his first term as president and Indiana Jones conquers the silver screen in Raiders of the Lost Ark. Director Paul van den Berg remembers 1981 as a breakthrough year as well. 'The Aztec is what really put Montis on the map as a manufacturer of contemporary design furniture. It set us apart in the industry.' Thanks to the identical height and width of its back and armrests, the sturdy sofa proved to be a striking newcomer in the Dutch furniture landscape. 'Its shapes have continued to inspire and appeal – not unlike a modern Chesterfield.'
