‘Visions of Reality’
FOR EUREKA DESIGN
“Anni, amori, e bicchieri di vino, no che contato mai.”
Years, lovers, and glasses of wine. These are things that should never be counted.
WE PLAYFULLY PLANTED PROPS IN OUR SET DESIGN.
Edward Hopper is an artist I admire for his use of colours to create mood. His works inhabit an imagination of soulful characters that appear surreal. There is an innate sense of longing in these subjects that borders between fantasy and reality.
Eureka Architects handed us a blank slate to create our scenes. Given carte blanche, we played as we wish. Colorful, freshly painted, vacant shelves and empty bins were beginning to be filled with products.
The film ‘Age of Adaline’ inspires our story. Starring Blake Lively, it is about a female character who never ages. Before her relationships get too serious, she walks away. Adaline eventually meets a man she wants to stay with. No more running. Our first scene opens with Adaline outside a window looking in. We next show her lingering in the store for a long while. As it begins to get dark outside, our male character offers her a sampling of their wine. Even with subtle hints that it is almost closing time, Adaline is hesitant at leaving.
CLUSTER FOR THE ISF ACADEMY
ISF Academy hires Eureka Design to revamp a social space for students. There is a clever modular seating plan where both students and teachers can transform, move, and re-arrange a design to suit their needs. Whether it is group work-study, individual studying, or simply snacking, here are a few scenes we staged:
