Trojan Powder Coating in Bay Shore, NY partnered with Young Projects in bringing architect Bryan Young’s award-winning concept to life in Times Square in New York.

 

Match-Maker, a unique installation designed to connect perfect strangers, was selected by the Times Square Alliance and the Van Alen Institute as the featured design for this year’s Valentine’s Day heart. 

 

Prominently displayed in Times Square, this innovative structure showcases interwoven aluminum periscopes which highlight the 12 astrological signs, offering a potential match for visitors looking through the webbed installation at their cosmically-aligned prospects. 

 

Trojan Powder Coating worked with manufacturer Kammetal to provide custom powder coating in various rich shades of merlot, cherry red, coral and light pink. The shiny bright hues introduced a dramatic effect to the structure, and the sleek periscopes of the installation convey a modern, fresh aesthetic for art lovers—and romantic hopefuls—this Valentine’s Day.
