Architect; Interior Designer; Product/Industrial Designer / United States / Jeffrey Beers International

Over the last 25 years, Jeffrey Beers’s work has set a new standard for the field of hospitality design. Through thoughtful planning, design innovation, and a synthesis of architecture and craft, he has created gathering spaces that transcend trends.

While an architecture student at the Rhode Island School of Design, Jeffrey studied with renowned glass artist Dale Chihuly. Jeffrey’s interest in the relationship of architecture and glass led to an IIE/Fulbright scholarship in Brazil. While there, he worked with the celebrated Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer, whom Jeffrey credits with opening his eyes to the world of color and form. Upon returning to the U.S., Jeffrey had the opportunity to join the New York office of architect I.M Pei. Here, he helped develop the design for the acclaimed Raffles City complex in Singapore, in the process becoming fascinated by the dynamics of hotels and social spaces where people come to dine, celebrate, or be entertained. In 1986, he founded his own firm, Jeffrey Beers International (JBI).

Since then, the award-winning firm has been consistently recognized for its outstanding hospitality design as well as Jeffrey’s ability to unite artistry with business strategy to create highly successful spaces, from hotels, restaurants, and nightclubs to retail outlets, residences, and offices. JBI is the recipient of three Gold Key Awards for design excellence, Contract magazine’s Interior Design Award, Interior Design's “Best of Year” Design Award, and in 2000 Jeffrey was inducted into Hospitality Design’s Platinum Circle.
