Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2

Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2

Astek proudly worked with Production Designer Scott Chambliss and Set Decorator Jay Hart on creating the fantastical world of Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2.

Our team of designers worked closely and diligently with Chambliss and Hart to create the look of Ego's palace in the film. With their guiding vision, we designed and printed the bedspread, fabric drapes, flooring, and columns. A staggering 27,000 square feet of material in total! Hart discusses the process with Set Decor below:

"The fabric was a much more complicated endeavor than I anticipated...getting the pattern right was difficult. We worked closely with Aaron’s team of designers at Astek Wallcovering, who are always great. After several tries. we just weren’t getting it, so I went there and spent the afternoon with them hammering out the design. [Editor’s note: The set was in Atlanta, Astek is in Los Angeles, Hart lives in Palm Springs – triangulation!] We then did test printings to get the color right, but although the pattern was right, it just didn’t gel. I don’t remember how many strike-offs we ended up doing—it was a tedious process worked on by a lot of dedicated people. And the smell of the dye when the shipment of 300 yards of fabric was opened in Atlanta required the evacuation of the Set Dec Dept! We had to set up fans to air out the entire department. Our Graphic Designer Susan Burig brilliantly came through and worked with Astek to get the color we ended up using, and everything finally came together beautifully."
