In Los Angeles, a replica of the set piece from Stanley Kubrick's Oscar‐winning 2001: A Space Odyssey is on display.
Hailed as one of the most epochal science fiction films of all time, Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey helped shape cultural dialogue about the future throughout the latter part of the 20th century. In the final minutes of the film, Kubrick brings the viewer (through the eyes of astronaut Dr. David Bowman) into a bedroom in which neoclassicism and futurism—old-age objects with bright LED-lit floors—are juxtaposed, creating an iconic setting.
Now, the recently opened The 14th Factory in Los Angeles gives visitors the opportunity to become part of the Kubrickian space. For its opening installation, the gallery has collaborated with architect Paul Kember to create Barmecide Feast—a precise replica of the bedroom originally designed by product designer and NASA future projects employee Harry Lange prior to the film’s shooting in the 1960s.
Barmecide Feast is on display now at The 14th Factory.
