1978 Movie, Coma, Highlights Some of the 70s Eyepopping Design

Last night we watched the Michael Douglas 1978 thriller, Coma. The movie is about a hospital conspiracy, in which the chief of surgery is putting healthy young patients into comas in order to harvest their organs for sale on the black market. Being the 70s, there's some great set design within the film. Some a little far out, like the interior of the Jefferson Institute's coma warehouse (above), while others have some cool accessories we wish we could get now...

Check out the rad cube calendar on the nurse's desk. And that white phone is pretty nifty. It looks like something Hulger would make now for Skype.

The waiting room at the Jefferson Institute with some space-age furniture. We never thought we'd like bright red carpet, but it gives that bland room a nice punch.

And well, we couldn't resist sharing this massive computer seen in the movie. Reminds us of when we learned Pascal in middle school.
