Spooks

Spooks: The Greater Good is a 2015 British Spy film, continuing the popular TV series Spooks (known as MI-5 in some countries), which originally aired on BBC1.

With a plot focusing on the clandestine activities of Great Britain’s Secret Service operatives, many scenes take place at the heart of the British intelligence establishment, and an operations centre & meeting room featured the HAG H04.


Set Decorator Liz Griffiths was looking for a stylish and sophisticated look for their main office chair for these scenes, and with lighting a crucial aspect of the filming process, the fabric had to be just right. Liz was excited by HÅG’s ability to upholster almost any fabric onto their chairs, and after a string of tests, settled on the vibrant lime green you can see in the pictures.


The chairs went down a treat, and added to the general feel of the interior scenes they featured in, and (spoiler alert!), you may also notice a couple of them getting blown up at the end of the film!

„The colour pallet for the Subcommand set was to be strictly monochrome with just apple green and blood red accents, avoiding standard office beige. The finished sets feature bespoke furnishings and fittings such pantone selected chair upholstery and desks constructed using laser-cut metal and glass.”
