Jeffrey Beers

Founder and CEO
Jeffrey Beers International

Jeffrey Beers is an architect, a designer, and an artist whose distinctive work brings emotion to modernism.  He studied architecture at the Rhode Island School of Design while learning glassblowing from the renowned artist Dale Chihuly.

He was awarded a Fulbright scholarship and traveled to Brazil to study with the legendary Oscar Niemeyer. When he returned to New York he went to work for I.M. Pei. These masters define his vision: the dynamic use of space, subtle materiality, and tailored elegance.

In 1986 he established Jeffrey Beers International bringing his signature sensibility to some of New York’s most vibrant restaurants. He quickly expanded into hotels, resorts, and residences.

When he’s not brainstorming design ideas with his studio, you can find Jeffrey sculpting with molten glass, sailing off the coast of the Atlantic, or cooking a meal for family and friends.
