Marc Newson Orgone Chair Circa 1993

Rare Orgone chair by Marc Newson circa 1993 finished in ivory, the Orgone chair was designed in 1993 by Marc Newson. The original design comes from a series of limited edition aluminum furniture designed by Newson in his Paris Studio “POD.” A plastic version suitable for the mass followed after a short time. The Orgone chair is a progression of Marc’s Lockheed Lounge and reflects Marc’s desire to work with an industrial approach. “Unconsciously, I think I started to leave holes and spaces because it seemed to be a workmanship and finishing of the highest quality, the inside and vice versa: there is a gap where the inside becomes the outer legs inside the shapes.”
