    Here's a behind-the-scenes look of how Petri from the Micrographia collection was made. Inspired by viruses under a microscope, colorful inks were dropped into petri dishes and photographed at different stages. These captured moments of ink shifting in water were composed into one mural design. See the completed mural in all three colorways here: http://astekwallcovering.com/design/petri-mutant

    Last week, the Astek staff rolled up their sleeves and spent the afternoon creating shibori dyed fabrics. Through folding, twisting, and binding cloth the team experimented with the Japanese dyeing technique to create interesting patterns and marks. The resulting textiles will serve as the source for Astek's upcoming collection Natsukashii.

    This accent wall in the Clive Daniel Showroom really pops! This Quartz Calypso colorway from Astek’s Crystalline collection was inspired by unearthed crystals and natural forms. Printed on a silver mylar using our own top-of-the-line, large format printers, the final mural is a stunning surface that reflects light and brings impact to the space.
