ASID tours Apparatus Studio

Twenty-five students and emerging professionals attended ASID NY Metro's tour of Apparatus's new showroom and studio as part of its Emerging Designer event series. Owners Gabriel Hendifar and Jeremy Anderson shared with the guests how the business came to be. The group was also led on a tour of the studio by Peter Staples, the head of marketing at Apparatus. Glenn Gissler, president of ASID NY Metro, and DJ Johnson, vice president of membership for ASID national, joined students and emerging professionals on the tour. 

“One of the key areas of focus for ASID is supporting and empowering the designers of the future," says Johnson. "It was energizing and inspiring to see that in action at this event.”
