Brian Graham received a BFA in Interior Architectural Design at California State University, Long Beach, where he also served as an Adjunct Professor. Best known for designing casegoods and office furniture systems, Graham cites 20th century masters Richard Neutra and Charles Eames among key influences. In 1999, he established the Graham Design Studio in San Francisco, where he crafts integrated programs for clients. His role is strategist as well as designer. "You need a bit of peripheral vision to integrate the elements that impinge upon design: markets, technology, culture, the human factor," he says. 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.
