Francisco Jove DAS Concepts Inc.
Moran / Brown was commissioned to create a 19' w x 8.5' h copper wall sculpture for the Setai Fifth Avenue. The Setai Fifth Avenue is a 5 star luxury hotel in the heart of Manhattan. We provided the large built in wall artwork for behind the reception desk in the main lobby.
The Interior Design Firm, DAS Concepts wanted to incorporate a large artwork with a reflective surface to help magnify the size of the lobby. The designer also wanted artwork that would lend a feeling of spaciousness, luxury and serenity to the lobby, creating a refuge from the energy of the city outside.
DAS concepts principal Francisco Jove saw our artwork exhibited at the Architectural Digest Home Design Show in NYC. The firm contacted us a few weeks later with a proposal for the commission. They had suggestions of color based on our palette of metallic yellow, green/golds and aqua hues. We provided numerous renderings for a design and they chose the final design.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
