10 product collections were deployed for this prestigious project. Durable, quality products selected by the architect from our many brands including Artopex, Teknion, Studio TK, Keilhauer, Bouty, Tusch and Global. All of this was done by 2 of EMBLM’s 5 business locations.

This project benefited from the expertise and services of two of EMBLM’s sites, the Montreal and Sherbrooke offices. The client thus had access to a large number of brands and to the unparalleled service of EMBLM’s teams present in the 4 corners of Quebec.
