Djiin Lounge Chair

Djiin Lounge Chair
Olivier Mourgue for Airborne 1965

The name “Djinn” refers to an Islamic spirit capable of changing shape. The Djiin lounge chair, also known as “2001” chair, became a famous design icon after it’s prominent appearance in Stanley Kubrick’s  2001: A Space Odyssey. Olivier Mourgue created undulating, low-slung seating for home and commercial environments. He experimented with color and material, flexibility and disposability with zip-off stretch nylon jersey covers.
Born in 1939 in Paris, Olivier Mourgue trained in Paris, Finland and Sweden.
By his mid-twenties he was recognized as an innovative leader in furniture design. He is also a painter, landscape designer and the author of Imaginary Gardens and Little Theatres.
