Creating Custom Artwork for Your Space

Project #1

Artists Circle was contacted to create a custom, bicycle-themed sculpture to be installed in the lobby area adjacent to the fitness center in a mixed use multifamily/office building in Washington, DC. Associate Katie Giganti developed several concept sketches and the client finally settled on the idea below: bike chains vertically suspended from horizontal armatures, mounted at different depths from the wall. Some of the bike chains will be colored in a palette designed to compliment the finishes in the space.

Project #2:

This custom art concept, developed for a lobby in Rosslyn Virginia, is designed to represent a topographic map of Rosslyn, the Potomac River, and Washington DC. The wall sculpture will be made of thousands of aluminum tiles bent at various radii to create the topo effect.

Project #3

The Law Library of a local Circuit Court is being renovated and the designer integrated a large “floating wall” to separate the study area from the book shelves. Associate Katie Giganti first presented some wall sculpture concepts to the client and they loved the idea of something circular to break up the otherwise very linear feel of the space. However, they started thinking something with thematic imagery related to the use of the space would be more fitting than a purely abstract work of art. Katie then created a custom, 7’ diameter photomontage. The overlaid pieces on top will stand off at various depths
