Bostik and Artaic Partner with Microsoft

Bostik and Artaic invite Manhattan-area Architects and Designers to attend FREE Mosaic Workshop!

Bostik, Inc., a world leader in specialty adhesives and installation systems for building construction, and Artaic Innovative Mosaic, creator of architectural mosaics using its patented American robotic production, will be staging a FREE Mosaic Design Workshop Thursday, March 23rd, at Manhattan’s Microsoft Store, 677 Fifth Avenue from 6:00 – 9:00 pm.

“Together, Bostik and our strategic partner, Artaic, are on a mission,” stated Scott Banda, Bostik’s Director of Marketing and Business Development. “We want to bring the ancient art of mosaic design into the 21st century. We’re inviting architects, designers and mosaic enthusiasts to learn about creating masterpiece-quality mosaic designs using proprietary robots and the world’s most decorative, high-performance grout, Dimension™ RapidCure®. Those interested in taking part in this one-of-a-kind, hands-on event are urged to register soon, as attendance will be limited.”

The evening event will feature a hands-on tutorial focused on how best to utilize Artaic’s software, Tylist™, which drives robots to assemble mosaic at speeds hundreds of times faster than that of a skilled human mosaicist. Additionally, attendees will also learn about the many benefits offered by Bostik’s proprietary Dimension™ RapidCure® glass-filled, pre-mixed, grout that is specified by Artaic for the one-of-a-kind aesthetic appearance it brings to any tile installation. There will also be a quick design competition using both of these products, which all attendees will be asked to join. The winner will be awarded a Microsoft Surface Pro Tablet!

“We staged a similar workshop in Boston a few months ago,” added Dr. Ted Acworth, CEO/Founder of Artaic. “The response to that event was outstanding. Our goal for this upcoming Manhattan experience is threefold: We want it to be educational/relevant for all attendees; we want it to stimulate their interest in mosaic design, and we want it to be a great time for all!”

Following the scheduled workshop/presentations, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres will be served nearby and all attendees will be invited to attend this free, private event.
