“These Platinum Records represent some of the memorable musical hits of this generation and the top producer who created the magic,” said Mat Roy, president of Living Color Aquariums and star of Nat Geo WILD’s “Fish Tank Kings.” “It’s only natural for these timeless records to be showcased in something as unique as the aquarium we were commissioned to create.”
Furthermore, Living Color Aquariums has teamed up with designers at Kona Grill (www.konagrill.com), to develop a specially made aquarium habitat for their new 24th location opening this month in Meridian, Idaho. Kona Grill has been in business for 15 years and has over 23 contemporarily designed restaurants with dramatic interiors featuring high-end aquariums installed in every location. As such custom aquariums are a very important brand feature of Kona Grill’s restaurants. Living Color Aquariums took this into consideration and crafted an innovative, modern and artistic aquarium that utilized the same stone wall texture used throughout the restaurant within the tank, along with mesmerizing LED lights and incredibly lifelike artificial tree roots that extend throughout the aquarium. The aquarium was custom-made to captivate patrons of Kona Grill and provided a stunning replica of the fish’s natural habitat.
In keeping with Living Color Aquariums continued contribution to helping create new designs for iconic locations, Living Color Aquariums is installing six unique 300-gallon fish tanks in the iconic Fontainebleau Miami Beach (www.fontainebleau.com). This 1,504 room resort sits on 20 oceanfront acres in the heart of Miami Beach. Its most distinguishing feature is its original curvilinear Chateau Tower designed by renowned architect Morris Lapidus, and representing one of the most historically and architecturally significant hotels in Florida. The tanks will hold freshly caught seafood served at the hotel’s eight dining destinations, include AAA Four Diamond Award-winning Gotham Steak, Hakkasan and Scarpetta. VIP visitors taken on tour of their restaurant’s vast food preparation area will experience two custom made aquarium towers, recreating a beautiful deep sea environment, where restaurant customers can choose which lobster or fish they would like to eat.
