Intoo & The Wolverine

Last year Intoo Pty Ltd was involved in the production of the latest Wolverine film directed by James Mangold staring Hugh Jackman. It was a MARVELous opportunity to demonstrate the diverse and intricate work we are able to create here at Intoo Pty Ltd.We helped create some of the settings and props in various scenes throughout the production of the film.  Invited to the crew screening on Sunday we got to see a sneek peek of the work we did:

As Logan flies to Japan on Yashidas private jet, notice the molded wall panels recovered in fabric and the leather banquette.

The Yashida residence overlooking Tokyo, a Japanese mansion set within extensive and beautifully maintained grounds. For this set we used 160 meters of silk fabric to cover 110 padded wall and door panels which are heavily featured in Yashidas & Logans Chambers.  A lot of work and man hours went into steaming all 160 meters of the silk fabric to loosen the weave before we stretched it over the panels. Wall upholstery is a specialty of Intoo Pty Ltd and the result is magnificent.

We recovered a Hans Wegner shell chair in orange leather (now proudly sitting at home in the bedroom), and a H.W Klein chaise in a green fabric & leather, which we now have in the showroom.

An action scene on a speeding bullet train sees Logan fighting against a Yakuza bad guy. The bullet train shell & interior was made from scratch by the art department at fox studios. To help we cut, stitched glued and recovered 68  seats for the train. Below is picture form one of our visits to Fox Film Studios.

This was a new and wonderful experience for all the team at Intoo and we enjoyed the work immensely. We also were lucky to visit and see the set designs that we took part in and would like to extend our appreciation to the very talented Set Decorator  Rebecca Cohen, for giving us the opportunity to collaborate and being our set tour guide on occasions.
