Daybed, 2005     Images Concept Facts
Lockheed II is a concept piece and the result of a collaboration between Berlin designers Ingo Strobel and Flip Sellin. The visual language of the archaic and ironically military object is a mix of stealth fighter, origami and low resolution crystalline elements. The title playfully refers to Marc Newson’s LC1 Lockheed Chaise Longue of 1985.

Lockheed II was created in 2005 for the Designbrussels exhibition in Belgium. Strobel and Sellin designed the playfully stealth-shaped object to round off their ironically military themed range of design objects. The outcome was widely acknowledged, and therefore gave birth to the idea of adding more one-off pieces to the “Burning Chrome” project in 2006.
Other pieces by COORDINATION related to this object are:

→ Polygon Crash
→ NoVolume, Paper Birdie and Twiggy.
