Choctaw Casino

Móz Designs as Manufacturers

Award-winning metal experts, Móz Designs, are excited to share their latest project at the Choctaw Casino in Durant, OK. Designed by Tulsa-based JCJ Architecture, the resort’s expansion elevates the existing property into a sleek, contemporary destination for entertainment. Setting the tone and bringing meaningful details to the space, Móz designed ten statement columns throughout the lobby as a nod to the Choctaw Nation’s underlying culture and heritage, while complementing wood tones and details within the new space. Optimizing movement through organic textures and gradient patterns, the columns dually serve as a point of connection, creating a rhythm throughout the lobby that guides towards other experiences and features within the resort.

Móz designed two different columns for the Choctaw expansion— six custom, oblong-shaped columns wrapped in Móz’s Skinz Wenge, a finish that captures the depth and feel of authentic wood, and four square columns finished in Móz’s Gradient Moonlight, bringing a modern and elevated feel to the casino. Elevator tower cladding in a complementary custom blue Powder Coat ties the architectural features together. The combination of intentional details and upscale elements was brought to fruition by the expert detailing at Móz, bringing grounded, sophisticated finishes into the shared space while supplying high quality, durable decorative metal designs that last in high-traffic public areas.

The project team was on a fast-track schedule for the casino’s expansion, allowing for only a thirty-month design and construction timeline. Móz rose to the occasion, adapting to the ever-changing pace with updated revisions during the shop drawing process and value engineering to reduce the labor and complexity of the installations. The collaboration process resulted in visually stunning project features, expressing movement and depth that spans the entirety of the columns as focal points throughout the lobby.

Material Used:
Móz Designs’ oblong custom-shaped column covers are roughly 4'-11" x 3'-10" in varying heights up to 23'-0" tall.  The columns are made from 3/16" aluminum, finished in Skinz’ Wenge Wood with engraved reveals. The square metal columns are 4'-6" by 3'-2" with engraved horizontal reveals, made from .090” aluminum finished in Móz’s Gradient Moonlight Coarse Durafilm. The elevator tower cladding is comprised of 1,824 square feet of .090” aluminum in a custom blue Powder Coat. The brackets and trim are 1/4” aluminum in a clear finish at the reveals.
