I love tile… particularly, mosaic tiles. I am so awed by the technology of today and the artwork that can be created from it. Artaic is a Boston-based company specializing in exactly that- custom mosaic tiles. Established in 2007 to make the beauty and artistry of the mosaic medium more accessible, they use sophisticated design software and an innovative robotic mosaic assembly system. With that, Artaic brings the ancient art of mosaic to a new level.
Artaic won a Gold Award and a $50,000 grant at the 2011 MassChallenge for start-up companies. I had the opportunity to go by their offices after their MassChallenge win with my son, Justin, who works with many of these entrepreneurs, to see the robotic process in action… They can take ANY image and turn it into a work of art! SO impressive! Here are a couple of their designs as well as some other tile inspirations that we love! The variety of colors and uses is limitless.
