Trek interior design

Courtesy of Dave Campbell - too funny not to quote in its entirety (and I completely agree with him!).

Where did the Enterprise crew get all those wonderful lights?



Now YOU can transform your apartment or living room into a futuristic starship bridge in three easy steps.

1. Paint everything Bright White latex paint with a satin finish for easy cleaning.
2. Swap out all accessories, furniture, and fixtures with brushed stainless steel replacements.
3. Purchase the following lights:

* 650 Dioder multi-purpose lights (with extra lens flare filters)
* 24 Asker countertop lights
* 12 Gruda bookcase/picture lights
* 24 Kramare spotlights
* 1 Spoka night light (for science officer's station)

Caution: You may have to wear sunglasses at all times.


The only thing they lack, of course, is the fixture that makes Kirklight.

Perfect!
I've just been blogging about Star Trek and 1960s design--finding all sort of stuff I didn't know existed, or had seen a million times but never thought about as design--like the Sputnik lamp:

Thanks for your fun site, as always.
