Craig Bassam is an architect and designer whose career started with Bruce Eeles, a disciple of Marcel Breuer. His partner, Scott Fellows, is a Harvard MBA who transformed the Swiss firm Bally. Together they are BassamFellows, described as “the design world’s A-team” by The Times of London. In 2010 they were commissioned by Geiger, a subsidiary of Herman Miller®, to develop a new line of refined seating that complements classic works by Eames, Nelson and Noguchi. The result is the BassamFellows Tuxedo™ Lounge Collection (2011). Taking its name from the classic tuxedo sofa, which features arms and back of the same height, this collection has the low, sleek lines of the International Style, but with a distinctly American and comfortable seat height of 17 inches. “Comfort is extremely important to me,” says Bassam.
