A landmark of the science fiction and the neo-noir genres, Blade Runner is also awash with design objects by Rams. Lochman points out the objects used to create the film's futuristic background. Set in a dystopic Los Angeles, Blade Runner stars Harrison Ford as a retired cop fighting human-like androids. Lauded for its design and effects, Blade Runner was nominated for Academy Awards in set design and art direction.
