R9 is a UK based design studio that has caught the imagination of the people with their science fiction based sculpture and functional art. Their latest creation is custom coffee table inspired by George Lucas’ film Star Wars. This Star Wars Millennium Falcon Coffee table is simply being called ‘70’s Falcon’ table because they wouldn’t want to pay royalties to the producers of the film. Falcon is the centerpiece which takes up almost the entire space under the glass. It almost looks like the replica of the spaceship has been put there in a glass case.
Falcon has been made from cold cast bronze with a retro wood grain veneer and sits majestically on the wood base of the table. The brothers who founded R9 in 2009 have been inspired by Hollywood’s greatest special effects masters and they have studied and recreated some of the most iconic film props of all times. What makes their art work different is that they present it by incorporating it into stylish and useable furniture pieces. The Falcon coffee table is a brilliant reproduction of George Lucas’ vision.
The R9 website has shown this table as being sold. There is no provision as yet on the site for pre ordering the table but the whole generation that grew up watching the Star Wars franchise would definitely like to order one. The table is priced at £950 which is equivalent to $1,500. The brothers at R9 have created a series of such furniture pieces with Sci Fi influence. The venture has given them the opportunity to design and create without any artificial constraints and they have used their memory and imagination to come up with some stunning functional art.
