Tron's Set

To Celebrate my husband's one year anniversary at his job, yes I am this silly, I took him to see the movie Tron. I knew nothing about this movie, so I did not have great expectations of it. The movie was good, but just not my style. What did catch my eye was the set design.

Here are some pictures of Tron's Midcentury design in the main character's, played by Jeff Bridges, home.

Now, I'm loving the Barcelona chairs and the Eames chair with the Arco lamp, but the super traditional "carved" pieces just did not seem to fit in to me. Yes, they have been updated by being made out of acrylic, but they just don't seem to work. I honestly don't know what happens in some of the scenes because I just sat there trying to figure out how the furniture plays into the story.

Here's a link to a story that has some explaination. Basically, the character is recreating his home in Tron with familiar shapes and furniture from his childhood, only with Tron's materials. (If you don't understand this, don't worry. Two hours before writing this, I didn't either, ha!)

Here are a couple of shots of other super-sleek sets in the movie!

Fun Fact: The director went to architecture school and had a big say in the set design. I think it shows! 

Need Interior Design help? I would love to help.

  1. I think the traditional pieces of furniture creates a link of where Jeff Bridges character comes from. And to be honest I really don't care if it actually means anything, I just think the sets were amazing. I won't complain about having those furniture...
