Jack Torrance: Mr. Grady, You WERE the caretaker here.
Grady: I’m sorry to differ with you sir, but YOU are the caretaker. You’ve always been the caretaker. I should know sir, I’ve always been here.
One of the most iconic aspects of the film The Shining is not Stanley Kubrick’s direction, nor Jack Nicholson’s demented acting: it’s the repeating carpet that lines the Overlook Hotel. The honeycomb pattern made up of warm reds and oranges is both menacing (when you think of the film) though quite aesthetically beautiful in that sort of House Industries sort of way.
Mondo, the Austin based gallery known for the appropriation of pop culture, has released the Mondo 237 collection, which is a series of clothing and home items that utilize the print. For those of you who’ve dreamed of having a cardigan (or balaclava) with the iconic pattern look no further. Personally I think the doormat is pretty rad, and the detail of having the key on the clothing tag is a nice touch. Really nice implementation all around.
