2001: A Space Odyssey - Furniture, Home Decor, Interior Design & Gifts

Sure, 2001 isn’t very futuristic for us now. It’s in the past after all, and we know that 2001 has more ‘90s influences than the intergalactic vibes of the Kubrick film. But that doesn’t mean you can’t get some inspiration from the cool and funky pieces from the 1960s classic.

Space Age was definitely a huge thing during the ‘60s because of the Space Race. That’s why Star Trek and 2001 were such powerhouses. You could also see the influence it has on fashion and design. Take the famous Djinn chairs and Saarinen furniture as examples.

The Djinn chair was created by French designer Olivier Mourgue as a Modernist piece. Its bright red color and the informal and unique curves of the chair earned it the name Djinn (from the Islamic shapeshifting spirit). Nowadays, it most popularly known as the ‘2001 chair’ because of its iconic appearance in the movie.
