This project was in a new luxury residential property being built in Hong Kong. The art consultants commissioned 14 custom PODS ranging in size and color from 18" up to 48". They were to be installed onto a sawtooth marble facade for the hotel's elevator lobby walls. The PODS echoed a previous design from our studio that we customized for the client and their space.
The architecture, interior design, finishes and color palette of a site were taken into consideration when selecting colors and textures for the artwork. We provided the client with cut sheets to assist in the color selection process, together identifying a color arrangement for the artwork which would connect with - and compliment the space. The PODS were finished with a powder coated glaze to compliment their refined forms.
In this project we worked directly with design professionals to accommodate their site specific need for artwork. This collaboration was a rewarding experience that produced a design which combined both of our creative visions and worked with the criteria for their location.

[ 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.
