Bostik, Artaic: Partner with Microsoft to stage interactive designer workshop

Home Press Release Bostik, Artaic: Partner with Microsoft to stage interactive designer workshop

Wauwatosa, Wis.—Bostik, and Artaic Innovative Mosaic co-hosted an interactive workshop for key members of Boston’s A&D community at the Prudential Plaza Microsoft Store in Boston’s Back Bay on Oct. 6th.

Twenty top architects and designers attended the workshop to learn about creating mosaic murals using the new Microsoft Surface Pro 4. After being introduced to/being updated on Artaic’s robotic production process, which is driven by the firm’s patented Tessera software, and also learning about Bostik’s Dimension Rapidcure glass-filled grout, each of the attendees were asked to create their vision of a mosaic mural apropos for a Microsoft Store using a Surface Pro 4 pre-downloaded with Tessera software. They were also asked to specify complementary Dimension grout for their respective designs.

“To sweeten the pie and get our guests really ‘into it,’ we held a small competition,” said Scott Banda, Bostik’s director of marketing and business development. “Each designer’s creation was to be judged not only by the Artaic/Bostik team, but also by each of the enthusiastic attendees. The winner would receive a brand new Microsoft Surface Pro 4 courtesy of Bostik.”

Samantha Clarke, senior associate at MDS/Miller Dyer Spears, Boston-based architecture, planning and interior design firm, was the winner, coming up with a whimsical mosaic mural rendition of a 1970’s Bill Gates photo.
