  • Furniture for a DaVinci suite

    Posted by Ola Haldor voll on July 24, 2010 at 11:28 am

    I’m moving my services to a new facility, and will need to get some furniture. I’m looking to get something along the lines of what Blackmagic had on their stand at NAB, or similar.

    I’ve been looking at a few norwegian online shops but they seem to focus on mastering for sound, thus placing some rack units on top of the table instead of a second level for monitors.

    Is there any online shops in Sweden, the UK or US you know would help me out on this? Or do you know a specific set of furniture that would suit my needs?

    I’ll be using
    – two computer monitors
    – a 17″ or 26″ Panasonic BT-LH LCD monitor
    – a pair of Genelec 8020 or 8030
    – Euphonix (or preferably Resolve) control surface

    I would order custom table.

    I would definitely recommend AKA.

    The best chairs, desks and inbuilt furniture solutions going! A little pricy yes, but the clients really value the additional cost.

    Oh wow! That looks exactly like something I’m after. Pricey? I don’t mind. I’d rather have something like that than some cheap IKEA furniture that makes my suite look like a toy room.

    Does anyone know the measurements for the Resolve panel ?

    Glad to hear I helped!

    We have 7 of the AKA desks in our facility of various different sizes as well as shed loads of their top of the range chairs. They are literally the most flexible and customisable chairs out there. Never once had backache sat in them, mainly due the the adjustable lower back strip.

    They also do facility design and do an incredible job of that also!

    Facility design.. Interesting. At what cost? 🙂 Long story short, I’m one of a few selected guys being offered almost free rent for office and some equipment (different kinds of monitors, Beta recorder/player, Harris scopes etc, a fullblown theatre for sound design and grading sessions on a 4K projector).

    All of us having different skills, from project management to producers to sound designers and musicians to editors and me, an aspiring colourist.

    I’ll take this further. Would be awesome to create a consistent look in each and every room and office – but it all depends on the price of course.

    Make sure to get a desk that let’s you rackmount the scopes just below eye level and below your view of the monitor. Having to turn your head left/right to look at scopes for 10 hours kills your neck and slows you down.

    If you haven’t already, look at Anthro online. We run their Fit Consoles here on our shop and they will easily support the Resolve setup. They also have many other configurations. Not sure if they ship overseas though.

    You can see the configuration in our shop if you go to the website, Facility page and look at the Wally World and Jungle Land rooms. We are building a new shop now and all 9 of the production rooms will have those consoles.

    AKA desks are very very nice, but it all depends on the look you’re going for. If the decor is right a big oak desk can look much nicer, or something custom built where you can recess the control surface.

    Ola – where are you based? We’ve just put a Resolve in at Nordisk in Oslo and some of the NRK post team are coming over soon for a system demo so there should be a few places you can see a nicely built suite soon.

    Oh nice! I’m moving very soon to Trondheim and will be based there, even though the heart and soul of the company is located a bit south of Trondheim.

    Dimensions for the Resolve Control Surface
    1250mm wide (49 1/4 inches)
    480mm deep (19″)
    200mm high (8″)
    allow 100 mm behind for plugs/cables (4″)

    The panels have a built in slide-out keyboard (from the center panel) so you don’t need extra room for a kbd but I would leave a little space for a mouse/tablet on either/both sides.
