Famous Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen stars in The Guest – the second of two short films from boconcept. The second instalment of the creative collaboration between urban furniture retailer BoConcept and celebrated actor Mads Mikkelsen premieres March 18th at 4 a.m. EST with The Guest.
Cukic, who also directed BoConcept’s first short film with Mikkelsen, The Call, says of the two films, “Compared to the previous film The Call, which was high on drama, we wanted to make something more lighthearted and fun, and Mads is perfect in the role of furniture geek.”
Set in Sunny Spain
The movie was shot on location in sunny Valencia, Spain in the home of world-renowned BoConcept designer Morten Georgsen. He created many of the furniture pieces starring in the film and is thrilled to see his designs in action. Georgesen beamed; “I have always believed that beauty and function must go hand in hand. What’s the point of beautiful design if you cannot use it?”
He designed the house himself using various levels and flooring materials, and creating a natural transition from indoor to outdoor. The outdoor rooms and lighting played a great part in creating the perfect light and playful ambience in the film.
In The Guest, Mikkelsen and Cukic play old mates who reunite in Spain. Mikkelsen’s character shows off his new home, which includes beautiful women in unexpected places and chic, functional BoConcept furniture pieces throughout. BoConcept Visual Manager Jette Christensen explains: “This film is lighthearted and more casual, but we wanted to maintain a high level of elegance with an exquisite tone-on-tone selection of white and grey.”
In celebration of the film, BoConcept will give one lucky fan a chance to win an interior makeover worth $5,000. Visit www.boconcept.us for more information on how to enter and to view The Guest, which debuts March 18, 2015.
