Design & Engineering Team

Dustin Headley

Director of Product Development

This is about shaping space in a variety of senses – tackle visual and acoustic. Linking the mechanics of how things go together to solve human problems and celebrate human senses.

Design Philosophy

Be a good human.

Tyler Yager

Director of Architectural Design

Design for the void.

Design Philosophy

Seek challenge, question assumptions, promote good, learn always.

Jiwon Han

Design Manager

I joined the TURF team because they have a reputation for putting design first.

Design Philosophy

Think outside the box.

Rob Krejci

Design Manager

Design changes our perspective to the world; it is a lens that molds our relationship to the spaces we inhabit and the products we use.

Design Philosophy

Design smarter.

Zoe Post

Architectural Project Manager

I prefer thinking about design more holistically, and following architect Ernesto Rogers’ philosophy: “spoon to a city”. I like working on all scales of design problem solving.

Design Philosophy

Good design transforms and improves life on earth.

Harrison Steinbuch

Production Design Manager

For as long as I can remember, I have been interested in shaping space. I get most excited about producing engaging environments, fabricating interesting experiences and experimenting with new ways to make captivating spatial effect.

Design Philosophy

Design is the act of making with intent, solving problems creatively, and thinking critically about form and function at every scale.

Blair Woerfel

Project Manager

I have always appreciated how all aspects of design come together as a complete environment, from layout and materials to user movement and interaction. Looking forward to actively bringing an interior designer's perspective to TURF's inspiring array of products.

Design Philosophy

Design is the act of providing a solution. Be it for desire, need, or imagination.

Alex Moore

Sr. Design Engineer

Out of fear of boxing myself in, I approach being a designer as an ever-evolving cycle of gaining new experiences, perspectives, and ideas. The process of constantly asking new questions and merging ideas allows for unique solutions regardless of context or scale.

Design Philosophy

“The limits of my language mean the limits of my world.” —Ludwig Wittgenstein

Tyler Van Kirk

Computational Designer

Design can be both simple yet complex. It is both the product and the method. You can design at the scale of a city or the scale of a toothpick. If we limit what is and is not design, then we have already failed.

Design Philosophy

If you can design a better way to do anything, do it!

August Atzenweiler

Design Engineer

Learning music from an early age and being raised by designers, I grew up learning about sound and how it affects the built environment. It’s an often unseen “X-Factor” that can make or break the design of a space.

Design Philosophy

Design is the act of doing all things with intent and purpose. It is the idea of pouring thoughtfulness into every aspect of life.

Hayden Newton

Design Engineer

My favorite way to think as a designer is to begin with an absurd idea and will it into reality. My favorite way to make that happen is through rigorous digital and physical testing.

Design Philosophy

Let’s build it.

Jo Burton

Design Engineer

Design is about commitment and elevating the spirit. One must stick to the intent, whether it is to be subtle or to be bold, and then test how much they can get away with.

Design Philosophy

"To complicate is easy. To simplify is difficult." —Bruno Munari

Jennifer Lee

Design Engineer

My approach to design is to look at life with a critical eye and find opportunities for joy. Have an experience or two, talk to people, do some thinking, and get to work!

Design Philosophy

“You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” —Maya Angelou

Nick Mattia

Design Engineer

Challenge the traditional in fun, speculative, and surprising ways - un-expect the expected.

Design Philosophy

Risk it for the biscuit!

Jacob Waas

Design Engineer

For me, design is the opportunity to examine the human experience through fictive storylines of imaginary worlds at the intersection of digital content and spatial abstraction.

Design Philosophy

“Great art is clear thinking about mixed feelings.” —John Baldessari

Account Manager

“Go a little bit out of your depth. And when you don’t feel that your feet are quite touching the bottom, you’re just about in the right place to do something exciting.” ―David Bowie

Amanda Blend

Account Manager

“Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.” —Mary Lou Cook

Teresa Adjuntas

Account Manager

Don't limit your challenges...challenge your limits!

Alex Puscheck
