Brief         The client was a serious Dr Who fan. He had outgrown his nearby study with his collectibles. Key must have's were, ample storage to house his incredibly large collection, seating which evoked a gold class cinema experience and a whopping huge television.  

Budget     40K

To execute some key elements, we engaged jewelry designer Studio Elke . Inspired by the forms of the clients own ornaments, we thought Elke's geometric and resin made jewelry made for a fruitful collaboration. Their signature tassle earrings, inspired ways to cleverly disguise the sea of DVD spines. To assimilate an intergalactic starry sky, custom painted MDF panels were  perforated and back lit. Lastly, custom resin pieces by Elke decorated the stem of a simple bare bulb light fitting, providing a meaningful feature upon entry.  The striped features found in the base of the light  fitting, mimicked the stripe found in Dr Who's scarf... and yes ....the client did indeed own Dr Who's scarf.
