Famous Labs From TV and Film

Famous Labs From TV and Film

No great eccentric scientist from TV or film is complete without his or her equally impressive laboratory. This innovative space is what allows them to make their remarkable discoveries. At Klick we design and install commercial labs so we asked our experts to look into some of the most remarkable fictional laboratories and discover if they could in fact become a reality. So as Dexter would say “to the lab!”

Back To The Future

Doctor Brown’s lab, although a garage, functions in the same way as many of our clients’ commercial laboratories, allowing him to build his infamous time-traveling car, The DeLorean, as well as some other fun gadgets too.

We might not be able to time travel yet but we could definitely transform a garage into a fully functioning lab.

At Tonbridge School we designed and installed a cutting-edge lab, transforming a historic building into a contemporary laboratory. The lab furniture for this project was bespoke and designed to fit the client’s exact requirements. It is this precise customisation and specialist knowledge that would allow us to transform most buildings into a research laboratory. Some of our other inspirational labs include the University of York and Tonbridge School.

Dexter’s Laboratory

Dexter by his own definition is a boy genius who is constantly inventing new technologies that are then destroyed by his sister Dee Dee. His top-secret lab is situated underneath his parent’s house, something they never catch onto. Here in his own lab, he makes some rather profound discoveries for someone who is so young.

Could we make it?

You would need a lot of space for such a large lab and some of the technology he uses is rather advanced. But given a vast space and a long lead time it might be possible.

Batman and The Batcave

Batman would not be complete without his state of the art laboratory, The Batcave. The modern lab is located underground in the caves below Batman’s mansion and has some great gadgets that help him save Gotham.

Find us a cave large enough that could hold a vast amount of equipment and we could have a go at kitting it out. A supercomputer that can watch over the citizens of the world, that part is up to you.

The Iron Man Lab

Tony Stark’s laboratory is the ultimate man cave. The lab has some impressive inventions and highly advanced technology that allow him to become Iron Man.

With the continuous advances in technology a modern inspiring lab like this is very much a possibility. And as technology develops future laboratories could very much look more like this, with the same capabilities as the Stark empire.
