At InUnison Design, we love sharing our time and talents with ASID Minnesota, MCAD, Gilda's club twin cities, and other local non-profits.
Minneapolis college of art and design
As part of Christine's love of original art and photography, she's proud to showcase the work of alumni from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD) at FUSE, her showroom in International Market Square. She also loves hosting special events at FUSE to introduce artists, photographers, art collectors, interior designers, and architects to each other.
Gilda's club Twin cities
Christine Frisk is a passionate advocate of Gilda’s Club Twin Cities, a non-profit that supports people living with cancer. When the board embarked on a project to create new headquarters for the club, Christine donated her design services to plan, design, and furnish the staff offices, meeting rooms, a kitchen, and rooms for art, movement, preschool care, and hang-out spaces for students. Working in close collaboration with the board of Gilda’s Club and local philanthropists, as well the developer, architects, designers, contractors, and artisans, Christine helped transform a commercial building into an inviting and supportive environment that has become the standard for other Gilda’s Cubs across the country.
Design for a Difference
In 2015, Christine and a team of local interior designers participated in a unique philanthropic initiative to support Bridging, a Twin Cities-based non-profit. Led by Lucy Penfield, Allied ASID, and Nancy Nelsen-Flom, CEO of INTERSOURCE, the team transformed Bridging's retail store into an exciting destination for thrift shoppers, dealers, and consumers. At every step of the way, the team's efforts were supported by Design for a Difference, a community-driven designer movement sponsored by The International Design Guild.
A longtime member of ASID Minnesota, Christine was honored to serve as 2016 president of the chapter. During her tenure, she collaborated with ASID to host the national conference in Minneapolis, complete with a Prince tribute concert! She has also served as vice-president and committee chair, and contributed her talents to the ASID MN Showcase Home and other initiatives. In recognition of her many contributions to the ASID MN community, Christine received the prestigious Designer of Distinction award at the 2016 Awards Gala.
