Architectural Designer Lisa Darroh-Pouls of Albuquerque, New Mexico-based Pouls Hospitality Design was announced the winner of Artaic and Bostik’s annual global tile mosaic design competition at Design ‘N Gather at the VIP event hosted at Hyde Bellagio in Las Vegas on May 4. More than 600 guests, including top hospitality architects and designers, were in attendance with co-emcees Scott Banda, director of marketing and business development at Bostik, and Ted Acworth, Ph.D., CEO and founder of Artaic. Darroh-Poul’s mosaic, “Champagne Wishes,” was revealed to the crowd as the glass mosaic backdrop of the selfie studio exhibition.
Joyen Vakil, senior vice president of Design and Development for MGM Resorts International, one of the ten DNG judges said, “This project was ideal for Hyde. Clearly, it was beautifully designed and perfectly themed for the environment of our nightclub.”
According to Darroh-Pouls, “’Champagne Wishes’ is a genesis of an alluring mythological goddess. She rules over the world of decadent, sparkling, golden libations. Her actions are playfully calculated as she inspires each fortunate guest by blowing a mesmerizing kiss ensuring ecstasy and pageantry befitting the Hyde Lounge. The Selfie Studio provides the perfect venue for guests to flirt with Hyde’s goddess while capturing her enticing beauty in a photograph preserving memories.”
