This Week’s Theme: Floors
Beer Distributor, Bonbright approached Real Art to redo the entryway at Bonbright HQ. The people at Real Art “saw a chance to not only set them apart but to help them tell the story of their core business: beer.” And that’s what they did. They created a floor covered in round (mandala-like) bottle caps from beers distributed by Bonbright. How clever!
…while the concept was simple, collecting more than 14,000 bottle caps was not. A number of employees from both Bonbright and Real Art pitched in to donate caps and we tapped a few local bars to help us out, too.
Then came the sorting. It was important from the start that the only beer caps included in the floor were from beers distributed by Bonbright. Hours were spent checking each individual cap before it was grouted in place and finished with epoxy.
After days of collecting caps, a week of preparation, and a full week of hands-on installation, the mosaic was finally complete.
Here’s their time lapse video of the process:
