ABSTRACT Visually, the space, art branches of the body with the most self-finds, live. Cinema is also one of the most
comprehensive arts offering to the designers. Science fiction films, which are one of the most impressive film genres, are seen
as the most important tools in describing future scenarios on any subject. Science fiction is the creation of scenarios related to
near or far future by combining science and technology elements which are not possible under today's conditions. For futurethemed sci-fi movies, designers conduct research in terms of interior and furniture use of the future and reveal products in line
with future predictions. Most of the time, furniture is brought to the fore especially in order to support the time-space phenomenon
while the film is being shot. These products are sometimes designed in terms of present or past furniture styles, and sometimes
the way to reflect the future is highlighted by highlighting the future emphasis on technological and futuristic phenomena.
The aim of the study is to reveal the innovative design concept of furniture designs used in science fiction films. In this context,
the most recent seven themed sci-fi films of Hollywood cinema will be discussed and the preferred furniture will be studied
through film visuals. Design features of these furniture were determined.
