We make no apology for mentioning 2001: A Space Odyssey so many times on this site, and today is no exception one of our mid-century furniture contacts has a Djinn chair in stock! This is the most sought after version as featured in Kubrick’s masterpiece.
Also available is a Djinn sofa, Djinn chaise and 2 stools but it’s the single chair which most reminds us of the Hilton lobby of Space Station Five.
The UK-based twentieth century furniture dealer have a professionally restored Djinn chair in stock priced at £1475 and they ship globally too. They also have a Djinn sofa, a Djinn chaise and Djinn 2 stools. These Djinn pieces are from Airborne (the original French manufacturer of Oliver Mourgue’s designs), recovered (by law) in fireproof foam and the same stretch Jersey that was used originally, in a colour as close as possible to the Space Odyssey pieces. Our dealer has loaned pieces to the Design Museum in London for an exhibition and also a Canadian museum. They are made from bent steel tubing, which is covered in webbing, then foam and finally a zipped cover exactly as the originals.
Priced £1475 – please email firstname.lastname@example.org for information and we’ll put you in touch.
