Brian Graham earned a BFA in interior architectural design at California State University, Long Beach, where he has also served as an adjunct professor.

In 1999, he established the Graham Design Studio in San Francisco, which adopts a multidisciplinary approach to design. “You need a bit of peripheral vision to integrate the elements that impinge upon design: markets, technology, culture, the human factor,” says Graham, whose crafts integrated programs for the studio's clients in his role as strategist and designer.

Best known for designing casegoods and office furniture systems, Graham also designed the Advocate Chair and City Hall Chair for Geiger. Both chair designs harness Geiger's superior woodcraft capabilities. With roots in early 20th-century European modernism, City Hall’s precise, rectilinear form is softened by a subtly curving inclined back that hugs the sitter. Influenced by mid-20th-century Danish modernism, Advocate is geometric, with a concave back detail that creates support. Both add to Geiger’s reputation for beautifully crafted wood seating.

Graham’s designs have been recognized by the American Institute of Architects, the International Interior Design Association, and the International Facilities Management Association, among others.
