Ever dreamed of having a Star Wars desk and chair set as a child?
Or yesterday? Inspired by Vader’s iconic meditation chamber in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, this custom Star Wars furniture project shows us that the pandemic has given us a freedom we might have not spotted until now – the freedom to work from behind fantasy-inspired custom desks like this one!
A three-sided desk, white on the inside and black on the inside hints to the duality constructed into the movie’s storyline. Sit down on the comfortable faux leather adjustable stool and imagine yourself the hero of your own story. Or maybe the villan, whetever gets those reports back before the deadline.
Working hard while keeping fantasy alive works hand in hand with this Darth Vader meditation chamber desk set. It even comes with an adjustable desk lamp included. Not any desk lamp, but a replica of Darth Vader’s helmet!
The story from the mouth of the designers at Regal Robot goes like this:
“This incredible Star Wars™ desk and chair set was custom-made for a client’s studio. She initially reached out to us about customizing one of our Emperor Throne Chairs, and after a bit of brainstorming, we explored a number of Imperial and Darth Vader themed furniture concepts too. Working closely with Lucasfilm, we sketched a number of interesting chairs and furniture based on Darth Vader and the Death Star. Eventually, we hit on the idea of creating a set based on Vader’s iconic meditation chamber in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.”
“Bridging form and function, we captured the look of that chamber in a three sided desk, using custom laminated millwork to recreate the bold white interior and imposing black shell. Angled shapes reach up to the sky, as if waiting for the top half to descend as it did in the film. The end result is a functional desk with a work space that, while not being a direct replica of the set, feels plucked right off the screen! The faux leather, adjustable height stool was custom upholstered to mirror the look of the seat in the chamber on set. The finishing touch is a built-in adjustable desk lamp, crafted to look like crane which held Darth Vader’s classic helmet in the scene!”
Star Wars inspiration is in many places, if you look for it:
