DIVISION is a design & fabrication studio based in Brooklyn, NY. With a background in architecture, the studio has been involved in the production of projects across multiple scales and mediums, from interior renovations, to large-scale sculptural installations, to product and furniture design. Our care for materials and methods is an extension of our continuous investigation of digital techniques and new ways of making.
