Meet Electric Coffin at the 2016 SEGD Conference: Experience Seattle

Patrick “Duffy” De Armas and his partners at Electric Coffin are in the business of bringing fine-art sensibilities to commercial spaces, and they’re unapologetic about their improvisational process and their point of view. If that display of a 1960s ski chalet turns left and becomes a pink bakery, so be it. We spoke with Duffy about his Seattle studio’s process and purpose, and we got project photos you’ll love. De Armas will be a featured speaker at the 2016 SEGD Conference: Experience Seattle!
