For the first part of this project we were asked to find out as much as we could about a chair of our choice. Here is some of the research I did about my chair. It's called the Djinn Chair and it was designed by Olivier Mourgue in 1965. It is highly influenced by the Space Age and was used in "2001: A Space Odyssey", but unfortunetly Stanley Kubrick destroyed all of the chairs used as part of the set after the film was made so that they couldn't fall into the hands of "lesser directors". It is named after an islamic spirit called a Djinn, who is a shape shifting being that can bring on sickness, poverty and general bad luck!
