We were thrilled to print the art-deco meets sci-fi wallcoverings for the film Passengers! Production designer Guy Hendrix Dyas wanted the film's spaceship bar to be both inviting and classic while simultaneously acknowledging the theme of interplanetary travel.
"The idea of travel through time and space is hinted at graphically on the walls and carpet and tiles around the entryway," says Dyas. "[The color palette of] rich golds and reds is part of the color journey of the film. We needed that sense of warmth and seduction that would bring our characters to the bar. Many of the other places on the ship are cold and hard and shiny white. This is a place that gives you warmth and a sense of the planet Earth. It's a taste of humanity."

Gary Baseman teams up with Astek to create fun and freaky wallpapers for his retrospective, "The Door is Always Open" at the Skirball Cultural Center. Gary created an indoor house in the exhibition space complete with living room, bedroom, dining room, study, den and back yard. Astek designer Gabe Gonzales and Gary worked together to create themed patterns for each room of the "House".
The dining room wallpaper takes queues from a traditional wallcovering Gary's parents had when he was a boy, but on a second look you'll find "Toby" and "Dumb Luck" hiding in the swirls. The bedroom patterns depict two themes, dreams and nightmares. The room is bisected by these two patterns. The den features an endless chain of Wild Girls and ChouChous frolicking in a field of yellow.
"It is always exciting to see what happens when we collaborate with great artists. This project has been no exception" -Gabe Gonzales
If you missed the opening don't worry, the exhibit will at Skirball until August 18th and is definitely worth checking out. When your there don't forget to stop by Audry's gift shop where you can pick up self-adhesive wallpaper tiles of the patterns from the show and wall decals of Gary's spirited characters.
We are also licensing all of the patterns from the show so you can use them in your project. Contact sales for more information.
