Apartamento Magazine Dissects Wes Anderson's Set Interiors
May 28, 2014 11:49
Apartamento's issue #13 dissects the meticulously-designed sets from various Wes Anderson films. The American filmmaker is known for his distinct visual and narrative style, and he uses interior design as a character trope or an added descriptive element to his storytelling, most recently seen in The Grand Budapest Hotel.
“I always say that a picture of someone’s home tells you a lot more about that person than any portrait possibly can,” says Nacho Alegre – director and co-founder of Apartamento. “I imagine in a movie the time you have to describe a character is limited, so using the interiors to do so probably becomes something of a necessity.” Read about Wes Anderson and his approach to set design in the latest issue of Apartamento.
