If I had a billion dollars... I'd build a Phantasy Landscape Visiona II

Needless to say the designer is Scandavian. 

I had the opportunity to go inside this room at the Whitney's exhibition Summer of Love: Art in the Psychedelic Era... it was joyous

 Verner Panton designed the Phantasy Landscape in 1970 for the Visiona II exhibition.  It is a rubber foam room full of rainbow colored spaces to sit/ lay/ kneel. Basically, if you ever wanted an orgy, this would probably be the place. 

I also think this chair is pretty sweet. Same designer. Of course. 
Actually, it was built in 1973, so post Phantasy Landscape. Hm
