“We are very excited about our partnership with TURF and love collaborating with other innovative, like- minded companies to provide previously impossible solutions. Together, we are answering the demand from the design community for a simple and pre-engineered way to specify and use our products,” said Bonnie Littman Gatof, CEO of USAI. “We are advancing the idea of perfectly and seamlessly integrated ceilings and light fixtures while helping to create spaces that allow designers to express and execute their ideas with the knowledge that these solutions are repeatable and easy to implement in the field.”
