“Design is function with cultural content”
-CGM, 1997


CGM Design was founded to design good products and to serve the community with an altruistic spirit based on his definition: Design is function with cultural content.

This approach was developed from absorbing the multi-disciplinary at the Eames Office and through Florence Knoll’s credo with 30 years at her eponymous company, collaborating with masters such as Frank Gehry, Ettore Sottsass, Maya Lin and Ross Lovegrove.

CGM has designed products for Teknion, Allseating, MoMA and exhibitions for BMW, Knoll and humanitarian projects as Micra-Ambulance, Can-Do and the WaterTower Kiosk project.
