The Djinn chair

An important design of the "Modernist" style. It was created by French designer Olivier Mourgue. Originally called the "Low fireside chair",[ it is also commonly referred to as the "2001" chair, because of its prominent appearance in the film "2001: A Space Odyssey The Djinn chair is actually one element of a series of Djinn furniture designed by noted French designer Olivier Mourgue. In 1964 the first piece of the series, a chaise lounge, was introduced by Airborne in Merignac Cedex, France. The rest of the series was released in 1965, and includes the iconic "Low fireside chair", a two seat sofa, and a foot stool. The set remained in production until 1976. The name "Djinn" refers to an Islamic spirit capable of changing shape. The design's low profile was an attempt to emulate the informal lifestyle of the time. The set was introduced during a time when growing interest in Eastern mysticism was influencing Western decorative arts.
