“Wallcoverings made of recycled tires and handcrafted wood-and-metal bar stools are featured in the sizzling DC restaurants that Griz Dwight designs.”

“GrizForm clients know they are getting something out of the ordinary, including custom furniture pieces, graphic design and branding concepts that create truly original restaurants and retail spaces.

— Interiors & Sources

“Believing that architecture can provide more than a shield from the weather, Dwight decided to open his own firm in order to push the bounds of creativity and strive to produce original spaces that maintain an awareness of historical context.”
