Next project Orgone Chair Previous project Alufelt Chair

The Orgone Stretch Lounge was made as a companion piece to the Event Horizon Table and the Orgone Chair. The form is what Marc was striving for when he made the Lockheed Lounge however at the time did not have the knowledge or the resources to make it. Both pieces were fabricated by British coachbuilders specialising in the restoration of Aston Martins.

“Leaving spaces means you can see how things work, it means you are not hiding anything. It gives a dynamic impression of your work. It’s almost like a fourth dimension.”

The Orgone Stretch Lounge, along with the Orgone Chair, Event Horizon Table and the Alufelt Chair, was shown at the ‘Wormhole’ exhibition, Marc’s first solo show in Milan, during the furniture fair of 1994.
