Join A+I at its office for drinks, conversation, and a behind the scenes look at their ongoing work. The League’s First Fridays are monthly opportunities for League members to visit the offices of leading design practices to see work on the boards and learn more about the offices’ organization and design processes. These informal social gatherings feature brief office tours and presentations along with happy hour drinks arranged by the host office.
In 1996, Brad Zizmor and Dag Folger founded A+I in New York City. The firm’s name is an abbreviation of “Architecture + Information,” a combination that defines its “investigative approach and creative curiosity.” A+I works in branding, strategy, design, and architecture with a focus on workplace and retail design.
The firm recently designed office interiors for Squarespace, Horizon Media, Tumblr, all in New York and for Canvas Worldwide in Los Angeles. A+I’s retail portfolio includes flagship designs for Sam Edelman, Carolina Herrera, Malin+Goetz, Vince, and Under Armour. In 2017, the firm completed the renovation and development of public spaces at Chicago’s theMART. Both principals were inducted into the Interior Design Hall of Fame in 2016.
