“Delivering as one”

Corporate teambuilding mosaic for United Nations Regional Coordination Office, Beijing

Dear Ms. Muller,
On behalf of the UN Country team in China, I wish to express my sincere gratitude for your contributions to our recently concluded retreat in Beijing. The preparation of the mosaic was one of the highlights of our program. All participants joined the activity with great enthusiasm and were most grateful for the opportunity to work with you and your team. The mosaic will make a most impressive addition to our office and provide tangible evidence of what can be achieved when working together…..

In May 2021 MosaicMoments was commissioned to engage 30 heads of UN agencies in a mosaic making session with the aim to experience each other in a totally different activity compared with their usual interactions via emails, phone calls and meetings.
The output was to be a mosaic made out of 30 squares for the staircase of the newly renovated building of the Regional Coordination Office.The client asked to depict the new UN slogan “Delivering as one” in the design as well as using the color codes for the UN publication materials.

Design by Kersten von Sohlern

MosaicMoments team prepared glass materials, work boards and tools for 30 workstations and transformed one of the meeting rooms into a mosaic workshop.The location was the Chun Hui Yuan Resort at the fringe of Beijing City where the retreat was taking place.

During the 2h workshop the participants broke material into tesserae and assembled the colorful glass squares into random letters and patterns, not knowing about the overall design, which wasn’t revealed to the crowd.

After one hour of quiet diligent work everyone got together in the center of the room and started to make sense of the letters randomly put together.

The slogan was guessed fast by one of the young female participants.

Feedback was extremely positive about the effect of immersing into colors and being completely taken away from business thought but yet contributing to a beautiful outcome that will decorate the work environment.
