Twoseven is a creatively-led design/build firm located in Brooklyn, New York. We specialize in the creation of store window displays, retail interiors, and showrooms for high-profile fashion companies in New York City and for export worldwide. We also create limited editions for artists, and exhibition materials for museums, galleries, and other cultural clients.
Twoseven was founded by Franco Götte, a Swiss-born artist and professionally-trained woodworker. After studying art at the Hochschule für Gestaltung & Kunst in Zürich, fate led Franco to NYC in the 1990s, where he worked as an artist and found freelance jobs in window display. After working for several years in the display field, he became the Production Manager of the windows at Saks Fifth Avenue, and in 2000 decided to start his own production company.
In 2002, Martina Salisbury joined Twoseven as its creative director, to expand the company's design capabilities. Before coming to Twoseven, Martina was a senior designer at the Museum of Modern Art, and spent eight years in Italy, where she worked as a designer at Colors Magazine, collaborated with design studios and other cultural institutions in Florence, and learned to make good, strong coffee. She holds an MFA in Design from the School of Visual Arts.
Over the years, the Twoseven team has grown to include a diverse and talented group of carpenters, fabricators, designers, architects and artists. With the combined experience and skills of our staff, and an international reputation for innovative design and high quality fabrication, Twoseven has become a leader in the field of display design and production. And we're still having fun (most of the time).
