Bouloum Lounge

by Olivier Mourgue, from Arconas

bouloum lounge

bouloum lounge

Design Olivier Mourgue, 1969
Foam upholstered tubular steel frame
Made in Canada by Arconas

With its anthropomorphic form, the Bouloum was named after a childhood friend of its designer, Olivier Mourgue, who took the charismatic seat with him when he travelled... even going so far as photographing it in various situations and writing anecdotes. As comfortable as it is provocative, one simply must experience the Bouloum to fully understand it. But be warned... once experienced, you will simply have to have one of your own.... it is that comfortable. Playful and practical, Bouloum is in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Olivier Mourgue

Olivier Mourgue (b. 1939) of Paris, France is perhaps best known for the bright red Djinn chairs that featured prominently in the 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey. They remain highly sought after as a classic example of 1960’s era modern furniture design. However, Mourgue is also a painter and landscape designer. He studied interior design at the 'Ecole Boulle' and furniture design at the 'l'Ecole Nationale Superieure des Arts Decoratifs' in Paris, graduating in 1960.
