Agents Kay (Tommy Lee Jones) and Jay (Will Smith) settle into the iconic Egg Chair as they ponder their next move in protecting the Earth from the scum of the universe in Men in Black II from 2002.

The creation of Danish designer Henrik Thor-Larsen, the Ovalia Egg chair was an immediate sensation when it was exhibited at the Scandinavian Furniture Fair in 1968. The shiny white shell is made of glass fiber–reinforced polyester.

It was inspired by the original Egg chair designed by fellow Dane Arne Jacobsen, which was introduced in 1958. He was the first to use a foam inner shell under the upholstery to give the chair its unique shape.
