Inside The Screen: The Magicians and It’s Magical Set World
Let’s Talk Magic Shall We?
With its return due at any moment, The Magicians just dropped it’s series three trailer. Based on the books by Lev Grossman, the long-awaited TV show has been the cherry on top of the cake we’ve been longing for since our loved magic saga ended – you know what we’re talking about-. So, let’s not wait and get around to know what this magical set world has in store for us this year!
Since 2015, this Hit TV Show has been capturing our hearts. Hands-on – got it? – this show has been making a buzz since it’s rooted. Having been a successful book series, we couldn’t help but bring to life some of the unique styles that only The Magicians brings into play. And talk about style. Every character has its perfect fit, and our fan favourite – Elliot, shhh – has always the capacity to charms our minds of when it comes to dressing code.
So, rejoice fellow Fellorians! This year is all about style. Everywhere. The past two seasons have brought us, white interiors, wonderful schools and nonetheless the best of it all – the characters and their good style. Everything is falling to place, it seems. …or is it?
From interiors where you can charm a goddess to places where you can recall the old times, everything seems a bit different from every set. The production designer Rachel O’Toole, art director Kendelle Elliott, and props master Pat O’Brien make sure that every set makes the series more tangible than ever. With vintage finds such as a chest from a real magician from early 1900s, magic is truly everywhere.
From an incredible grad school, the crown jewel is really the set design of the Physical Kid’s Cottage. With a lot of easter eggs to be found, The Magicians describe the set as “…a shabby but comfortable library lined with threadbare rugs…Books overflowed the bookcases and stood in wobbly stacks in the corners and even on the mantlepiece. The furniture was distinguished but mismatched, and in places, it was severely battered. In between the bookcases, the walls were hung with the usually inexplicable artefacts that accumulated in private clubs.”
Drawing inspiration from the book series, the Cottage presents all that the book has to offer and much more. The eclectic interior decor is a must and everywhere you look it seems like you don’t see the whole picture.
Not wanting to be in the run-of-the-mill comparison with Harry Potter, the production designer states ” “I wanted to avoid visual diarrhoea,”. To highlight the many colourful costumes of season two a fairly neutral colour palette was used.
But what about Real Magic? Matt Felson who has designed several of the show’s technical aspects explained that the team started by brainstorming ideas for magic and then implementing them with whatever tech made the most sense to use.
Feel the magic seep into your daily life with Lee. With a magical inspiration behind such as a classic 1950’s vintage style microphone on top of a stage, this mid-century modern floor lampwill turn any head around wherever you decide to put this amazing lighting design. Handmade in brass and its lampshade in aluminium and a glossy black exterior and matte white interior finish, this is the one that will steal all attention.
