Marc Newson designed this form for an installation at the Fondation Cartier pour l’Art Contemporain. The individual elements were displayed connected together in the form of a three-quarter sphere. Only 50 examples of this chair were produced; its title Bucky was taken from the newly discovered molecule, the Buckminsterfullerene, named for its resemblance to Buckminster Fuller’s geodesic structures.
