10 Movie Set Designs That Stole the Show

Set design is the silent partner of the whole filmmaking process, it’s there, it provides the world in wich the characters live, sometimes it turns the unbelievable into reality, yet it’s voice is only heard as an afterthought imprinted forever in our minds.

Stylish, minimal, futuristic or plain functional, a movie set can become the extension of a character and the focus point of a world created from scratch. Over the years we’ve seen some amazing pieces of art forever immortalized on celluloid product of both established and emergent designers who have dedicated their work to the magic of cinema.
