Amazing set design of a TV show in a post-industrial interior


Yesterday I spotted a show on Polish tv that was set in an amazing interior with fantastic colorful setting. The show is about women. Intimate questions are asked and man-woman topics are raised by a male journalist Piotr Najsztub.

Like I said, what I liked most though was the eclectic setting and I immiediately started to look for more photographs on the Internet. The program takes place in a postindustrial XIX-century interior of Soho Factory in Warsaw, where gigantic windows give a lot of light and brick walls create the perfect background for the interviews.
There aren't lots of objects used for creating the set, but the overall is just exquisite. Soft and fury sofas together with the carpets contrast with raw and harsh interiors. Two beautiful velour yet very different sofas are facing each other. The green with a folk floral upholstery is for the journalist, the other, quite funny and of XIX-century form (it may be also antique and redone), with contemporary quilted upholstery of this deep shade of red wine - for the guest, usually a beautiful woman. You can clearly see without saying which one of the sofas is for the journalist and which one is for women. Cubicoid table is of the same quilted textile that the red sofa. Colors of the carpet are again the colors of the sofas, the pillow repeats green sofa's shade as well, even the apples' colors match! 

The whole, repeating the same two colors, could be boring but thanks to this interior - is not. The monotony has been broken with huge abstract multicolor paintings hanging on the brick walls and industrial metal lamps (plus a fan).

The photos I found obviously focus on people, not the set. Try for a while NOT to look at the beautiful women and concentrate on the design of the interior :-)

Every detail matches. Look how beautifully the light comes in through the windows!

We can see how high and spatial is the interior.

  1. DVDs and Blu rays have now taken over the task of keeping us entertained. That’s because more and more shows and movies are available to watch.
