About this deal

I love the memory orb not only as a design object but also conceptually as an artefact that makes us consider what it means to be human and because of the questions it throws up around the connection between memory and identity. The Double Old Fashioned Tumbler from the CIBI collection is the real Bladerunner Glass, used in the famous film. This handcrafted crystal glass is perfect for lovers of whisky, spirits and drinks with a vintage taste. Cibi collection

The Memory Orb is my favourite piece of kit in the movie. This piece of wizardry is used to design memories for Wallace’s replicants, to help create structure for their personalities. These memories are created by a singular genius artist – Dr. Ana Stelline, a kind of virtual 3D artist using the Memory Orb to manipulate holographic stories which are then coded into replicants to make them feel more ‘real’ or human. “There’s a little of every artist in their work” she says. Dr. Ana Stelline creates memories for replicants using the Memory Orb

Lighting and cinematography also influenced the choice of furniture and design: “Roger Deakins had a big part in the creative process, we worked very closely looking at possible light s sources. Together we also designed and custom made light fixtures and testing all manner of materials” Querzola continues. Her office sits below Wallace’s main room, and the dappled light on the walls are created by the reflections of the water above. Querzola tells me she chose the Pierre Paulin chair in response to this lighting by Deakins: “I wanted curves and flow, I couldn’t imagine these light waves reflecting on a cube-shaped chair. I also wanted something neat but eclectic”. The Pierre Paulin ribbon chair by Artifort

The geometric shapes of the architecture and interiors create dramatic shadows cast by the yellow light. There is no natural sunlight in the building so Wallace has created his own (show off!). Director DENIS VILLENEUVE on the set of Alcon Entertainment’s sci fi thriller BLADE RUNNER 2049 in association with Columbia Pictures, domestic distribution by Warner Bros. Pictures and international distribution by Sony Pictures Releasing International. The Arnolfo di Cambio heavyweight glass whisky tumbler as see in Blade Runner. In 2049 we find little evidence of the kind of high-tech gadgetry and interactive, holographic computer screens that we have become used to in sci-fi films. Instead we find what Set Decorator Querzola described to me as a “sidebar” view of the future. Villeneuve and the production team wanted to create a future which extended the vision of the first movie and they found a grounding in this vision by imagining how the year 2049 might look if Steve Jobs and Apple hadn’t existed.

The F582 or ‘Ribbon Chair’ was designed in the 1960s by Pierre Paulin for Artifort. Paulin’s designs are distinctive in their striking sculptural shapes and earned him many prizes worldwide.
