DESIGN DISTRICT FAÇADE
Moorhead & Moorhead is the New York City-based design studio and workshop of brothers Granger and Robert Moorhead. Trained as an architect and an industrial designer, respectively, we collaborate on projects ranging in scale from furniture to buildings.
Our hands-on approach to design is fueled by in-house material exploration, and has resulted in a diverse body of work that is united by a common theme – the use of everyday materials to solve issues of function and form in simple, unexpected ways.
We enjoy working closely with clients, both individuals and organizations, who share our appreciation for the design process, and the value it adds to everyday life.
