Donkey Kong Entertainment Center

This entertainment unit created by Igor Chak is styled after the level design from Donkey Kong.

So one day I was walking around the outskirts of the vintage digital game world “which I sometimes do, please don’t look at me weird”, I came across an old scenario that has been embedded in my childhood memory…The colorful steel beams of Donkey Kong and I started to wonder, what happens to all those video game props when games become old….do they get stored away in a digital world or do they fade away with time?  The famous steel beams from Donkey Kong have served their time but I could not pass by such an ingenious design…. So as a designer I though how can I encourage Mario to take this back. I’m sure with popularity of Mario he is not a simple plumber anymore and he wouldn’t want some rusty beat up steel beams at his place but he would probably need some kind of sweet looking wall to put his awards and trophies on.

So here is a Donkey Kong wall, strong, good looking but still has its character. The wall is made out of individual sections; each section is made out of durable but light carbon fiber, anodized aluminum pixels that are joined with strong stainless steel rods and toughened glass tops. The special mounts themselves are made out of steel and can support up to 60lbs

So Mario….sit your Lady friend on that nice looking couch you have and enjoy the show!
