With trendy color combinations and designs, Phifer’s chic, durable furniture fabrics can transition from an outdoor room to interior living spaces.
Architecture for Humanity, a non-profit design services firm, has completed its new headquarters in San Francisco, Calif.
Partnering with Gensler for the interior remodel, Architecture for Humanity wanted to provide a flexible, collaborative space for workers who are in constant global communication with their members and overseas offices. Coalesse Bob chairs were selected and upholstered in Camira’s acclaimed Hemp fabric, made from a blend of pure new wool and harvested hemp.
“The studio is abuzz with the ‘very stylish’ Hemp fabric chairs,” said Michael Steiner, Architecture for Humanity’s program manager. “The chairs have added a great atmosphere to our second floor that epitomizes our laid-back and sustainable mindset.”
