Las Vegas’ Spectacular New “Height of Decadence,” Hyde Bellagio


“Design ‘N Gather,” the much-heralded, annual global mosaic design competition created by Artaic – Innovative Mosaic and sponsored by Bostik Smart Adhesives, is gearing up for its 2017 edition. The competition welcomes designers and collaborative groups from all disciplines to design on Artaic’s mosaic software, Tylist™. Designers will come up with an unimaginable signature creation, which re-defines mosaic design, for the soon-to-be most highly photographed


and wildly publicized Selfie Studio in the entire world! Based on the amazing success of this past event, Bostik, Artaic and MGM Resorts are vigorously working closely together to take Design ‘N Gather 2017 to an even higher, much more globally-focal level. As an architectural designer, YOU are invited to share in this excitement! And in doing so, have your unique design creation permanently recognized on one of the world’s great new stages.

Overlooking the world-renowned fountains, Hyde Bellagio is a spectacular 10,000 square foot indoor-outdoor nightlife venue, created by sbe Founder/CEO Sam Nazarian in partnership with global design icon Philippe Starck. The nightclub is comprised of Italian marbles, reclaimed woods, opulent chandeliers and glass doors. 



The Selfie Studio, the first of its kind, will feature your winning mosaic design permanently produced, installed as an 8’ x 8’ backlit, glass mosaic mural on a prominent wall within Hyde nightclub. This mosaic is destined to be a focal point of this den of grandeur for decades to come.




With thousands of tiles at your fingertips, design the first ever Selfie Studio by capturing Hyde’s grandeur, motif and the vibrancy of Las Vegas! Bellagio’s Hyde is an ostentatious experience, one that is not afraid to experiment



 with design and utilize high-impact materials and products. The design should portray the energy, life and essence of Hyde, through narrative and a mosaic art form that goes back beyond the Italian renaissance.
