Somewhere in the world, there’s a Star Wars fan who decided to design a home theater to look like a room on the Death Star and seems to have spared no expense. From the lighting features, to the seats, to these acoustic tiles by Tom Spina Designs.
As their website explains:
“The client was looking to create a home theater with the look and feel of being on a starship. We suggested themed three dimensional tiles inspired by the Star Wars Death Star trench and surfaces as a wainscot of sorts, running under the screen and along the lower walls and steps. These would give a sense of “tech” to the decor and, while recognizable to the avid fan, they would not be an over the top, obvious themed element. The end result blends wonderfully, with our pieces being a subtle accent, just one part of a large and awe-inspiring themed home theater.”
First, they made 14 master tiles sculptures that were 12″x12″ with a depth of 3″-4″. Then each master tile was molded and cast in tinted resin, to create 120 tiles that now grace the walls of the theater.
I admit, I want this theater. I need to win the lotto, but I want it. badly.
You can check out the video after the break for a look at the tiles and the room they were built for. I’ll tell you ahead of time, it’s a geek dream.
