Prometheus Starring Luxxbox

Production designers on Ridley Scott’s 2012 Blockbuster: Prometheus, cast the net wide in seeking out the right furniture for their futuristic, sci-fi film sets

Brisbane, Australia’s furniture and lighting outfit Luxxbox Design were contacted by Ridley’s team who had their lenses firmly focussed on the ’Brainwash Outdoor’ Collection.

Designer and Luxxbox founder: Jason Bird, was overjoyed with the opportunity:

“Being asked to be involved in a film of this calibre was a dream come true. I grew up on a healthy diet of Star Wars… His films ooze a new kind of sci-fi design style setting his vision apart from the rest, this in part influences my style now.”

Deciding to proceed with a custom variant of Bird’s collection, the process involved around-the-clock digital re-modelling and all subsequent manufacturing carried out in the UK, adjacent to the Pinewood Studios where the film was shot.

The Brainwash collection is a study in simplicity; achieved by forming, zinc priming and powder coating a single piece of steel.

Established in 2006, the home grown success story continues to go from strength-to-strength with a recently established Californian production facility serving the North American market and beyond.
