Wauwatosa, Wis. -- Sponsored by Bostik in partnership with Artaic, the unveiling of the winning creation for Design ‘N Gather 2018, took place at the NoMad Hotel in New York at a private VIP event within the Cupola, a city landmark which sits atop the hotel roof’s northwest corner. This winning design will be permanently installed right in the Cupola.
In addition to being specified for the permanent installation, Bostik's Dimension RapidCure was also specified as the grout of choice for each of the DNG top 10 finalists’ designs, and was on display at Bostik’s BDNY booth. Prior to selecting the finalists, hundreds of submissions where received from talented artists, architects, and designers nationwide.
“Designing a mosaic for the Cupola at The NoMad Hotel is particularly challenging due to the intricate measurements and shapes of the rooftop and wall,” said Ted Acworth, CEO and founder of Artaic. “The final submissions captured the essence of the hotel—creative, elegant, and considerate to the unique historical and architectural elements that influence this landmark.”
The winning mosaic will provide an elegant backdrop for Cupola guests to enjoy for years to come. The winning designer will receive a free trip for two to Paris, courtesy of the Bostik.
“This is the fourth Design ‘N Gather we’ve underwritten,” said Scott Banda, Bostik’s director of marketing and business development. “It’s important the A&D community is aware that no matter how beautiful, every glass mosaic project is only as good as its installation. Our Dimension RapidCure not only offers the most optimal long-term performance characteristics… it contains 60% recycled glass content that actually allows light to pass through the grout joint and into the tile itself, creating a three-dimensional appearance in translucent glass tiles.”
