The Object of Desire, Sweet Jane – A Corset inspired Lounger by Charlie Davidson

UK-based designer Charlie Davidson ‘s The Object of Desire, Sweet Jane is inspired by the form of a corset.

Davidson began the project a few years back, developing initial concept drawings to produce the first scale mock-ups and a number of 3D computer visualization.
Upon a visit to Vollers corset company – into producing corsets since the 19th century – the shape and form of the lounge really began to develop.

Although I like the corset story, I have a feeling there is some similarity in design with the Orgone Stretch Lounge by Marc Newson.

  1. I started this project back in 2004. I saw a vintage corset displayed as part of a private collection, it was tiny like it was for a teenage girl. The corset was late Victorian and beautifully embroidery , an essential fashion garment for any woman of that period,
    Today the corset is no longer a requirement of society rather a piece of costume or lingerie and the new S&M culture.
    Soon after I started drawing designs for the corset chaise lounge I realised I had seen something similar before and it didn’t take me long to work out it was Marc Newsons Orgone Lounge. I stopped and restarted the project over the next few years and each time feeling I hadn’t manage to make my piece significantly different from Marc Newsons. I finally my got over this problem when I realised that what I was making was about desire and perceived beauty rather than industrial computer generated forms.
