Djinn stool/ottoman (to accompany the Djinn chair) by Olivier Mourgue as seen in 2001: A Space Odyssey

Designer: Olivier Mourgue

Director: Stanley Kubrick

We are proud to present the Djinn ottoman/stool to accompany the Djinn chair (as well as the Djinn sofa) as seen in the sci-fi masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey.

One of the most iconic chair and sofa designs ever to be featured in a film, the Djinn series was designed by Olivier Mourgue in 1965 whilst working for French manufacturer Airborne International. The Djinn chairs and stools embody the essence of 60s futuristic design and have gone on to firmly take their place in design history.

With their wave like, low slung silhouette, they were selected by Stanley Kubrick to appear in the Space Station 5 lobby in 2001: A Space Odyssey. These pieces represent Kubrick’s vision of the future when the film was made (released in 1968) and the film has gone on to define what most visualise as the ‘future’ ever since.

We are thrilled to offer the Djinn series for sale through Film and Furniture. These professionally restored pieces are made from the original Airborne shells and are recovered (by law) in fireproof foam and covered in stretch Jersey. These museum quality pieces have been loaned as exhibits to the Design Museum in London and Film and Furniture have loaned their own Djinn chair to the Filmmuseum, Frankfurt for the official Kubrick exhibition in 2018 as well as to the Museum of Moving Image in New York for their version of the Kubrick exhibition in 2020/21.

The original film props have not survived. Stanley Kubrick destroyed all the sets and props afraid that they might fall into the hands of lesser directors. Coupled with the fact the Djinn chairs are no longer in production by the manufacturer, they have become valuable collectors items.

“The chair has arrived safely! The packaging was almost as impressive as the chair itself! Spectacularly done. It makes me want the two seat settee to accompany it. Thanks again for the quick and easy service!” Scott, Pennsylvania, USA.
