James Geier

About

Looking around Chicago, it’s easy to spot James Geier’s handiwork. The president and founder of 555 International has orchestrated design and fabrication of custom interiors for celebrated hospitality and retail destinations.  Geier is nationally and internationally recognized for his work with the Green Bay Packers, Dallas Cowboys, Loews Hotels , Armani Exchange, Hard Rock Hotels & Resorts, and The Alinea Group. Recent local projects include; Roister, Coda Di Volpe, Gemini, Bernies’ Lunch & Supper and a new 10,000 square foot flagship destination store for the Chicago Bulls and Chicago Blackhawks.

 Geier began his career at Neidermaier Design, where he gained invaluable experience in fashion, retail and product design and quickly worked his way into the prestigious role of design director for the company.  After four years, Geier left Neidermaier to open his first of many ventures as designer/owner/operator of a popular bar and nightclub, Union, in the Lakeview neighborhood.  His continued experience in ownership and operations of hospitality environments has informed the functionality of all the hospitality spaces he has designed.

The same year Geier opened Union, he also founded 555 Design, Fabrication, Management, (now 555 International Inc.) with the understanding that “to do it right, you have to do it yourself.”  30 years later, Geier directs a dynamic staff of artists, designers, engineers, project managers and craftsmen to deliver environments where people want to be.
