Gregory Beson is a designer and sculptor practicing in New York City. He works in collectible furniture, sculpture, lighting, artifacts, interiors and industrial product design. His work is mainly driven by historical research, material truth and concept formulation. Gregory is currently a professor at Parsons School of Design in New York. He began as a woodworker craftsman before becoming a designer. Many varied pathways led him to design: from music to historic restoration to fine furniture making.
“The poetics of material culture is where my interest is focused: a chipped favorite mug, the joinery and materiality of an artifact, a well worn door knob. I search for depth and richness to bring joy, connection and knowledge to all who interface with my work. I believe the designer has a unique responsibility and power. One which should not be taken lightly. Remember and study the past, understand and reflect on the present, and push and project what the future can be” said Gregory.
