Djinn Chairs

Flipping thru. the book 100 Charis, I saw the stunning Djinn chairs by Olivier Mourgue again. When I first saw them in Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, I was so impressed with the futuristic and stylish design. The name "DJinn" (the pronunciation is similar to Degine ^_^) was derived from a spirit in Islamic mythology that can assume human or animal form and control men with itssupernatural powers, which smartly matches the concept of the film.
