Simons has worked with numerous clients both in and outside of the furniture industry, including IDEO, the office of Herman Miller Aeron Chair designer Bill Stumpf, and NBBJ. He currently heads the George Simons Office for Design.
His Sotto Chair for Geiger—based on the Italian “sotto voce,” for quiet or private—brings a unique energy to the office chair category with a design that’s part work chair, part design object. Sotto stresses comfort, fine materials, and expert craftsmanship.
His work has been exhibited in museums including Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum and MoMA, and recognized with numerous awards, including the Cooper Hewitt National Design Award.
