Ovalia Egg Chair As seen in Men in Black II
When James Darell Edward III / Agent J (Will Smith in Men In Black II) entered the white stark room, he was greeted with big egg-shaped chairs. Those retro egg chairs were designed by Henrik Thor-Larsen and are called the Ovalia chair.
Designed in 1968, the Ovalia chair has a retro look with an ultra-modern sleekness. Started with a white outer shell, it, later on, was reproduced.

The Ovalia egg chair, not only seen in Men In Black, but also in the late 70s TV series Mork & Mindy, starring Robin Williams and Pam Dober. So appropriately used in the set design as Mork arrived on Earth via an egg-shaped spacecraft.
