Overview

Mosaics for Tempur Sealy International headquarters. There were two sites.
After the Storm evokes an image after a summer storm, when everything steams and drips beneath a re-emerging sun.
Rise and Shine is a greeting of the sun after a good night’s rest.

Goals

The artwork was intended to provide a healthy work environment and promote creativity and employee interaction. It was also intended to respond to the corporate identity and local landscape.

Process

The interior designer and Tempur Sealy liaison provided clear project goals and architectural information to ensure thematic and architectural integration success.
