Futuristic Interior Design in Cinema

The humanity always dreams about the future. It's a fundamental part of human nature and human psychology. Humans always create mental strategies and material objects for future living. These are steps of evolution of civilizations, material culture, arts, part of stages of individual development and so on. Perhaps we can say that human civilization is based on three dominant ideas: representation of the past, representation of the present and representation of the future. Previos centuries gave us a new great cultural tendency which can be called non-religious "fantasies about the future". All parts of contemporary human life include some elements of human ideas about the future. They interfered into human spiritual life, knowledge, scientific researches, industrial production, arts: fiction literature, journalism, advertising, avant-garde music, theatrical arts, painting and graphic arts, computer games, architecture, interior design and landscape design, fashion design, new notions of beauty and new aesthetic ideals. Thus the future-style creativity of XX and XXI centuries is often focused at entertainments. "The future is not set. There is no fate but what we make for ourselves" (John Connor "Terminator 2: Judgment Day"). That's why the images of the future are so lovely, popular, charming and attractive. We invest our hopes and resolutions in our future and in common human progress but at the same time we often fear the future. Therefore scientific and cultural vision of the future falls into three prevail categories: bright and optimistic ideas, dark and pessimistic forecasts and to varying degrees objective and balanced forecasts.
One of the fullest expressions of fantasies about future is cinematograph. Cinema is the most syncretic kind of contemporary human art. Cinema combines visual and performing arts, industrial design, literature and music, sport and activities of stuntmen, scientific and technological progress. There is a great number of acknowledged cinematographic masterpieces of fiction genre. They provide us with permanent inspiration and are often an important basis of our personal creative projects, they are an originally source and unforgettable style icons. Some of fiction films contain brilliant samples of futuristic architecture and futuristic interior design. Future style interiors are often created by famous artists, interior designers and decorators. These fiction artworks help to foresee, to anticipate some aspects of future tendenses of interior design. It is sort a creativity running ahead our time! For example, tendencies of fashion or interior design, inventions and gadgets, elements of daily life and even historic and social events. There is a feeling that science-fiction artworks are sources of ideas for contemporary scientific researches, original advanced inventions and projects in the area of new production technologies and industrial design. We can say that futuristic artworks are at an avant-garde of human mind and unique opportunity for free flight of most brave dreams of humanity.
