Astek designed and printed the immersive floor and wallcoverings for Craft & Art Folk Museum's exhibition Gronk's Theater of Paint, a retrospective of internationally renowned painter, set designer, and performance artist Gronk. The artist's prolific works and unique aesthetic directly informed the wallcovering designs in the Gronk collection.
The InterContinental New York Barclay hotel underwent an all-encompassing, 20-month renovation. The property, which first opened in 1926 as one of the city’s original railroad hotels, debuted with more than 420,000 square feet of redesigned interiors. Under the direction of the InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) Design Studio with the assistance of architects Stonehill & Taylor, interior design firm HOK, and Shawmut Construction, the team worked to restore the property’s original style while incorporating contemporary touches. Astek proudly printed the custom mural in the hotel's meeting room.
Astek Wallcovering worked with I-5 design as part of an extensive remodel for Casino Pauma. I-5 was asked to expand the existing buffet area to create a warm and inviting atmosphere that carried out the “ range grove” theme established for the entire property. The café makeover, included simulated arching wood beams suspended over the seating area, winding vines wall murals, amber mica chandeliers, and richly upholstered booths and furniture. Astek custom printed the murals for the cafe buffet for the makeover.
