David Allan Pesso has always been on the go. By the time he was 18, he had attended 14 different schools, an experience that taught him to take something positive from every experience, including finding creative inspiration in everyday things.
Pesso earned a bachelor of fine arts through the industrial design department of the Rochester Institute of Technology. Beginning with an internship at a contract furniture manufacturer, he has worked in interior design, architectural millwork, environmental graphics, exhibit design, and product design and development. In 1989, Pesso founded New Studio in Boca Raton, Florida.
In his designs, including award-winners for Geiger and Herman Miller, Pesso is “always striving for a clean, reduced geometry without extraneous details.” His Geiger Levels system suits both executive and collaborative offices with a trim footprint, intuitive access to power and data, and multilevel surfaces for project organization.
