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.
