Nancy Jackson from Architectural Systems to sit on board of non-profit BOFFO

President of Architectural Systems, Inc. Nancy Jackson has been selected for the board of BOFFO, a non-profit organisation which brings together artists, designers and architects with the public to engage one another in ‘meaningful discourse’ on their creative industries. BOFFO does this by transforming temporary event spaces into installations and pop-up displays/events in New York.

Speaking on the appointment, Jackson commented: “BOFFO is in line with our company values - innovation and conceptual design exploration - and we are proud to take part in the growth of this organisation. We were an early supporter of the cause, having supplied products that facilitated BOFFO’s experimental and iconic installations. We chose to align ourselves with this group to inspire designers who take risks working with materials.”

Jackson is well known in the industry as an innovator and curator of materials. She is a board member of the International Interior Design Association New York chapter (IIDA NY), member of the Association for Retail Environments (A.R.E.), and VP Emeritus of the PAVE (Planning and Visual Education Partnership) Gala.
