Looks can be deceiving. When Peter Ghyczy’s new Garden Egg chair is closed, it resembles nothing so much as a glowing psychedelic dinosaur egg. But then the back flips open to reveal a soft (removable) cushion, and the whole thing transforms into a cushy curl-up-with-a-book armchair. Ghyczy, a Hungarian native now residing a stone’s throw from the Soviet frontier in West Germany, designed the chair for Reuter, the plastics company. Like Verner Panton, Joe Colombo, Marco Zanuso, and Richard Sapper, Ghyczy takes thermoplastic technology fit for an Apollo flight and repurposes it for an equally daring mission: a rugged, weatherproof, city-sophisticated indoor-outdoor chair. Available in three visible-from-the-moon colors: bright orange, Sunkist yellow, or indigo blue. For more of the best of today, click ahead.
