  • Dijnn Chair and Footstool, Designed by Olivier Mourgue, France, Airborne, 1965
    By Olivier Mourgue
    Located in Berlin, Berlin
    A set of the DIJNN Chair and Footstool in the original red stretch fabric. Metal construction with fabric and metal sliders. The Djinn chair is one element of a series of Djinn furniture designed by noted French designer Olivier Mourgue. In 1965 the first piece of the series, a Chaise Longue, 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 footstool. 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. Originally called the "Low Fireside Chair", it is also commonly referred to as the "2001 Chair...

Best known for his design of the Djinn line of furniture, Mourgue's aesthetic is characterized by brightly colored jersey fabric stretched over structural steel frames that are filled with polyether foam, creating a unified, futuristic, alien-like modular form.
