The newest thing over in Boston’s innovation center’s District Hall, isn’t just the restaurant, Gather, but also, its latest mosaic tile installment. Throughout the month of October, artists from all over the globe competed to have their artwork digitally transformed into a mosaic tile installment in the brand new restaurant. The winning artwork (above) was chosen by a pool of judges and selected based on how well it “represented the characteristics of the Innovation District, District Hall, and Gather, both in imagery and narrative,” according to Artaic’s website.
And in case you missed the October event, Design Exchange Boston was a week-long celebration of the impact of design, featuring events and experiences. The design initiative teamed up with Artaic, a producer of mosaic art using design software and robotic manufacturing systems, to host the Design ‘N Gather competition. And voila — a mosaic tile installment in Gather was born.
The design competition welcomed competitors from various different backgrounds including fashion, interior, photography, painting, architecture and other creative design fields. In turn the judges experienced a tough time deciding between the fierce competition.
According to Artaic’s website, the competition had a “pool of submissions from designers around the world.” David Hacin, President and Founder of Hacin + Associates who took part in the selection of the winning entry, told Artaic, “We were impressed by the creativity displayed in the submissions and would have been delighted to have a number of them produced. Though the winning submission was one that truly complemented the architecture of the space.”
The winning mosaic went to Joseph Lyman for his work, “Building Dreams II.” According to Artaic’s website, it “was selected as the mosaic that best represented the characteristics of the Innovation District, District Hall, and Gather.”
