With Passenger, Interstellar and Gravity gracing our screens in recent years, we are more fascinated than ever about space and the possibilities of future travel. The total solar eclipse seen across the United States in August only heightened this further.

For a literal translation, artwork is ideal. Posters and prints are abundant with galactic subject matter. Traditional constellation maps and lunar phases are most common. However, personalised starscapes depicting zodiac signs or the night’s sky on a special day are also rising in popularity.

Tile designers have also joined the hype with stars being an extremely popular motif.

One retro design which really complements this futuristic trend is the midcentury sputnik chandelier. As the name suggests, the starburst-like arrangements are ideal for creating a celestial effect.

Metal and marble are essential when it comes to furniture and accessories. Marble is reminiscent of the moon’s surface while gold and silver mimic the gleam of far-off stars and constellations. Lara Bohinc‘s collection for Lapicida marries these materials perfectly.
