The line is the first in the brand’s Collaboration Series, in which Tectura Designs is partnering with the world’s most innovative and esteemed architectural minds. The series debuts with elegant and stylish projects from Damon Farber's renowned designers, who have created everything from Fortune 500 corporate campuses to university plazas to hospital campuses.
The Damon Farber Collaboration Series by Tectura Designs features an innovative marriage of materials, including concrete, wood and metal, enhanced with bold and sophisticated flashes of color. The modular designs offer scalability and design flexibility.
