Wauwatosa, Wis. -- Bostik will soon be announcing the winning design for its most recent edition of Bostik Signature Spaces. Designers throughout North America were encouraged to submit their most creative realizations of a waterjet cut-and-fabricated, round marble medallion to be installed in the main lobby of Las Vegas’ Bellagio Hotel and Casino. The focal location of this 13 ft. diameter flooring masterpiece will be walked on by over 20,000 hotel visitors every day.

“The Art of Stone Flooring Design Contest” welcomed more than 200 design submissions from flooring installation contractors, artists, interior designers and architects with expertise in commercial spaces. The winning creative project will be chosen by a panel of judges and will be celebrated in grand fashion at a VIP award ceremony and industry-networking event at the Hyde Bellagio Nightclub on May 3.

Bostik, the sole sponsor of this competition, is partnering with MGM Resorts International (the owner of the Bellagio), Creative Edge Master Shop (the waterjet firm producing the winning design), NTCA (National Tile Contractors Association) and Superior Tile (The 5-Star contractor to be installing the winning medallion).

“This medallion will provide an enduring focal signature space for the Bellagio, showing off the elegance of marble, and its combination with other architectural metals,” said Jim Belilove, president and founder of Creative Edge Master Shop. “Right now, I’m not going to give away very much information on the actual design to be unveiled. But, I can state that the medallion marks the signature ‘B’ as well as the construction dates of this Las Vegas landmark. We have already been told it is a masterpiece quality, true work of art.”
