Richard Douglas Rose
After receiving a BFA in furniture design from the Rochester Institute of Technology and working in the contract furniture industry (where he listened to end users and learned about real-world manufacturing), Richard Douglas Rose established Richard Douglas Design. A product design specialist, Richard focuses on solutions for the office furniture industry. He draws from a diverse set of interests including all things mechanical (especially aviation), extreme sports, travel, art, architecture and ergonomics to form the foundation of his design principles: performance, practicality, value, and aesthetics. With over 50 individual seating items in production, Richard remarks, "I am extremely grateful and gratified that my work has been so rapidly accepted by the industry." Richard Douglas Design is based in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
