Architecture and design firm Mancini Duffy, whose New York offices were destroyed in the World Trade Center disaster, benefited from the generosity of various companies following the tragedy. The firm was back up and running on September 17th at 277 Park Avenue thanks in large part to JP Morgan Chase, one of the firm's clients, who not only provided the space, but also furniture and equipment. "Back when I was a partner at Gensler," says Mancini Duffy design principal Dina Frank, "we designed JP Morgan down at 60 Wall Street. And now the furniture we're using comes from that project. So it shows you what goes around comes around." Frank also notes that Gensler, the Hillier Group, Plaza Construction, and Hewlett-Packard graciously donated new and used computers to the firm. Mancini Duffy is now working to help find new space for its clients who were also displaced by the disaster. Mancini Duffy, (646) 534-1424.
