Boxer’s Ibiza apartment in White Lines is full of eclectic furniture finds
Set in Ibiza and UK, the Netflix crime drama White Lines hits us up with a hedonistic mix of drugs, danger, beautiful landscapes and eclectic interiors.
As Zoe Walker (Laura Haddock) investigates the disappearance of Axel her DJ brother, some 20 years earlier, we are given a toe-tapping whirlwind tour of the white isle. The sun beats down on all the stunning beaches, impressive villas and outdoor pool parties (filmed mainly on location in Ibiza and Mallorca), but it’s the indoor film sets that had us putting our hands up in the air. From the Calafat family mansion to Marcus’s villa and Boxer’s apartment, the TV series is crammed with interiors inspiration.
Boxer (played by Portuguese actor and DJ Nuno Lopes) is head of security for Andreu Calafat (Pedro Casablanc) and a bodyguard at a local nightclub. With Production Design by Mike Gunn and Set Decoration by Graham Ward, we are treated to some wondrous furniture and decor in his White Lines apartment.
We find an eclectic mix of contemporary and retro furniture scattered around his open plan abode. But what is all this furniture and where can you find these pieces for your own home? Let’s take a look around…
Made famous in Kubrick’s sci-fi masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey, the Djinn series of chairs and sofas are truly iconic seating. Designed by Olivier Mourgue in 1965, these chairs and sofas embody the essence of 60s futuristic design and have gone on to firmly take their place in design history.
Djinn chairs and sofas have become valuable collectors items.
Djinn chair, Djinn stool, Djinn 2 seat sofa by Olivier Mourgue as seen in 2001: A Space Odyssey
Designer: Olivier Mourgue
Director: Stanley Kubrick
We are proud to present the Djinn chair, Djinn stool and Djinn sofa – as seen in the sci-fi masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey, one of the most iconic chair designs ever to be featured in a film.
Approx £1,085.00 – £4,750.00 / $1421
We also eye-spied a Stone Stool from Kartell, seen above in between the Djinns. Designed by Marcel Wanders it features a geometrical shape that is reminiscent of an hourglass. The irregular surface creates striking reflections of light.
An ideal seating option for any room it can also be used as a small table – as it is in Boxer’s Ibiza apartment.
Another design classic in the apartment is the Wassily lounge chair.
While an apprentice at the Bauhaus, Marcel Breuer conceived the Wassily lounge chair based on the frame of a bicycle.
Boxer is also seen in his flat relaxing on a Ligne Roset Togo sofa.
The Togo sofa was designed by Michel Ducaroy for Ligne Roset. Designed for a carefree way of life, it’s a perfect choice for Boxer.
This couch has been a best-seller since its launch in the early seventies. You get the feeling this sofa may have been knocking around on Ibiza long before the mega-clubs landed.
Boxer’s bedroom area is particularly well styled. Either side of his bed sit a pair of Bourgie table lamps.
Designed by Ferruccio Laviani, this baroque style lamp features a large pleated style lampshade.
Other items which caught our eye include the retro, oversized bulb lamp (seen above) which we haven’t been able to identify*.
The name and designer of the exact tripod floor standing light with saucer-shaped lamp shade (seen below) also escapes us**.
This is the kind of thing that keep us awake at night…. Can you help put us out of our misery?
*Update 5.6.20: We love our community! The floor lamp shown here appears to be a Ribbon floor lamp designed by Beatrice Durandart (thankyou Colourfall Collector). More details here.
** Update 12.6.20. The enlarged bulb light has now been identified as the Double Lamp by Aldo Nason. More details here.
