The challenge of turning a water resistant and durable mosaic into a high-resolution picture without using traditional mosaic materials
Working with visionary designers keeps suppliers on top of the most recent trends and developments.
Karim Rashid, the renowned designer challenged Ven Global with his vision. He wanted the bathroom mosaic in Park Inn by Radisson Amsterdam West to be a large high-resolution image of his own creation.
The challenge was in turning a water resistant and durable mosaic into a high-resolution picture without using traditional mosaic materials, as this was not consistent with his vision.
Ven Global found the solution in children’s silicon stickers. These stickers are both printed in high-resolution and transparent material.
After numerous tests the right material was chosen. Through an injection method, cubes made of a special glue were implemented over a printed high resolution sheet. And a layer of special silicon on the top with sizes that can be installed quickly and easily.
As result Ven Global has the capability to create high resolution mosaic pictures in any size.
For Park Inn by Raddisson West Ven Global delivered more than 15,000 sqm of silicon mosaic 478 bathrooms were built with more than 20 different designs, different colors and public areas.
