Coverings, the largest global tile and stone xposition in North America, recently
partnered with the School of the Art Institute
of Chicago (SAIC) and Chicago Mosaic School
to develop unique programs that investigate
the use of tile as a medium for creative design.
This past April, attendees of the show had
the opportunity to view an exhibition of tiled
benches, designed and built by students from
SAIC, and participate in interactive educational
classes presented by the Chicago Mosaic School.
Over the course of a three-week workshop, SAIC
students studying Architecture, Interior Architecture
and Fine Arts, learned about the process of
selecting tile materials, creating construction and
installation drawings, and fabricating and installing
the product to look and perform optimally. During
the course the National Tile Contractors Association
provided instruction on installation techniques,
methods, and standards. Teams of students then
collaborated to create benches that incorporate
tile and stone as the primary construction material.
These benches were on display for Coverings
attendees to enjoy, and were judged by an expert
panel for the most creative design and exceptional
technical execution during a special ceremony.
