Ice Cream with Steelcase & NBS

What’s better on a hot humid August day than a visit from Steelcase/NBS in their ice cream truck?!  It’s not so bad to go outside on a hot humid 95 degree day, when the ice cream truck is right outside your door!

t2 Night Out

We jumped into spring with a night out to exercise our creative brain just for fun!  With a snack and glass of wine in hand, we all set out to try our hand at painting a scarf.  Not bad results for beginners!

Design Symposium
Kate Stefanelli had the unique opportunity to participate in the Tandus/Centiva Education Design Symposium in Napa Valley, CA. She was invited to collaborate with 14 other designers from all over the country as well as the design industry icons Jhane Barnes and Suzanne Tick. Designers were asked for their input on potential future flooring designs from Tandus/Centiva. The experience was not only memorable, but educational and inspiring as well.

Open House
As a thank you to the community, t2 designs asked industry partners, clients, and friends to participate in a Back to School Drive. t2 designs was grateful for the generosity of our friends, who helped to make back to schools better for many local area children. Over 20 backpacks filled to the brim with school supplies, as well as more than $200 in donations, were collected in less than 3 hours. Thank you for joining us and making our new office Open House and school supply drive a success.

Finish to Fashion

t2 designs partnered with Cityscape Architects to win first place in the professional category at IIDA’s 2007 Finish to Fashion competition! Finish 2 Fashion blurred the line between fashion and interior design and changed how you think about finish materials! Local design firms and manufacturers coordinated to create movie-inspired costumes worthy of the runway. t2 designs and Cityscape Architects worked w/ Contract Source Group to bring to life Edward Scissorhands. Ticket proceeds for this event benefited Dress for Success, a local organization that assists women.
