Lockheed Lounge (Marc Newson)

Developed in 1986 in his studio in Sydney Marc Newson spent “a couple of miserable months” hamering out the form in aluminum.  Madonna used this chair in her 1993 “Rain” video.  The Lounge was expected to sell for 700k pounds but actualy topped out at 1.1 million or 1.6 million in US dollars.  The form pulls from Airline construction and loosely on a 18th century Chaise lounge.  Newson described his chair as a “Giant blog of Mercury”
