The LUMA Hotel Times Square is a new, ground-up, boutique hotel located just blocks from Times Square and Bryant Park. DM Art created abstract imagery on various substrates as well as a custom wall mural for 130 guestrooms and suites.
For this project, DM ART developed an art program inspired by the luminosity and synergy of nearby Times Square and Bryant Park. The custom wall mural imprinted on a substrate of faux glass beads delivers a dynamic punch of color yet glistens to the eye. Additional abstract imagery printed on various substrates and floated in simple metallic frames continue the narrative in the suites.
DM Art collaborated with Stanford Hotels, for this new hotel development. The process always begins with listening and understanding the client’s needs so that a successful interpretation of their vision is fully realized. The theme of luminosity although esoteric was not limiting when conceptualizing. It was a constant that was applied in subtle ways to the abstract artworks, setting the mood in the environment just as light does naturally.

[ 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.
