    Marc Newson originally produced the Lockheed Lounge as the centerpiece of an exhibition of his pieces at the Roslyn Oxley Gallery in Sydney. It was widely acclaimed and was bought by the National Gallery of Australia. Its concept was based loosely, very loosely on the chaise lounge in Jacques-Louis David's 1800 portrait of Madame Recam ier. He had an image of a fluid, aluminum form. The shape was sculpted out of a piece of foam, the exact same way you would create a surfboard. The only way to get the aluminum on was to bead little pieces of metal into shape wit ha wooden mallet and attach them with rivets. That is where the airplane metaphor came from, so it was called Lockheed Lounge.

    The Vitra Design Museum was founded in Weil am Rhein, Germany, in 1950 by Willi Fehlbaum. The modern furniture and design collection of Vitra is world reknown for its emphasis on modern design furniture. The Vitra Design Museum collection includes a fascinating collection of over 224 modern chairs which are all icons of modern furniture. These modern chairs are prominently displayed in the Vitra Design Museum in Germany. Vitra's modern design collection provides a comprehensive overview of the most beautiful design objects including modern furniture, lighting and accessories for the home.
