Oshkosh Designs has partnered with adhesives manufacturer Bostik, Inc., of Wauwatosa, Wisconsin to participate in their The Art of Hardwood Flooring™ Design Contest. Architects, wood flooring installation contractors, and interior designers were invited to submit floor designs for the lobby of a steakhouse in the new Park MGM Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Entrants were asked to design a striking floor to complement the restaurant’s aesthetics and the wood floor in the adjacent bar and dining room. The contest specifies that entrants may submit designs with no more than five woods selected from a list of six domestic species. The designs must use the woods’ natural colors and cannot be stained or color-treated in any way.
A panel of judges comprised of industry professionals has chosen the winning design, “Array” by Jennifer Sheets. She will be awarded a trip for two to Paris, France, valued at $6500. Oshkosh Designs has finished production of the winning floor design, and it is being installed in the Park MGM Resort restaurant, slated to open in September of this year.
Additional partners in the Flooring Design Contest include Eagle Bay Hardwood Flooring, Master Craft Floors of Redford, and the National Wood Flooring Association and MGM Resorts International.
