Jeffrey BeersFounder Jeffrey Beers International
An architect, an interior designer and an artisan, their founder and President Jeffery Beers is a true original. While studying architecture at RISD he simultaneously learned glassblowing from Dale Chihuly. A Fulbright scholarship brought him to Brazil where he studied with the legendary Oscar Niemeyer. These masters taught him to balance rigor with the fluidity of form. He then joined I.M. Pei & Partners where his fascination with social interaction and architectural space, especially in hotels and restaurants, began. In 1986 Beers founded Jeffery Beers International based on a style that synthesizes two legendary lineages: the timelessness of high modernism and the warmth of artisanal craft. Today, his firm’s designs adhere to the classical architectural principles of proportion, scale and dimension but they are dramatically enhanced by an artistic use of color, materiality and light. This balance is what makes their work distinctive. Nearing their 35th anniversary, the firm’s interior architecture and design portfolio has expanded beyond hospitality to include residential towers, corporate offices, cruise ships, and home décor collaborations, and it continues to win multiple awards as well as high-profile global commissions.
