Research + Development

what we are dreaming up

We are a cutting-edge design company focused on acoustic felt ceilings through advanced CAD/CAM manufacturing and digital fabrication. We balance aesthetics and performance in our products within sustainable materials and methods. At our core, we challenge our industry through lean manufacturing practices, fl exible design thinking, innovative technologies and being a badass set of humans.

At TURF, we work to design products that were designed to work. To do this we have to make, fail, explore, and most importantly play. Not every product experiment we make makes it to the product line and not everything we make is a product anyway. Below are some of the things we’ve made in the spirit of discovery and play – some of them are products we hope you’ll find useful, while others are musings we wanted to share with you to let you know what we’re about. We hope it inspires you.
