Meyer Davis is a preeminent global design firm whose projects include hotels, restaurants, retail stores, residences and workplaces. Founded in New York City by Will Meyer and Gray Davis in 1999, Meyer Davis specializes in creating immersive environments that are made to measure for each client. Visual impact, functionality, comfort and originality are the foundation of every commission.
The Meyer Davis style contrasts moods, materials, textures and colors to create imaginative interiors that are seamless three-dimensional expressions of their clients’ goals and individuality. Their designs work on multiple levels, combining bold architectural moves, intricate details and well-edited accessories to establish compelling spaces with unique character.
All of Meyer Davis’s public and private interiors are seductive and experiential. Will and Gray are storytellers who establish a narrative for every project that guides the design process from conception to completion. Fearless modernists and sympathetic preservationists, they are conversant in a range of architectural vernaculars, which allows them to work all over the world. Their approach is client-centered and design-driven with a focus on classical principles of light and form. They respect tradition architectural styles while simultaneously pushing beyond the familiar to achieve unexpected and powerful results.
As leaders in the competitive hospitality industry, they have partnered with brands such as Rosewood Hotels, Four Seasons, Loews Hotels and Le Meridien. Their recent award-winning projects include W Chicago Lakeshore, 1 Hotel South Beach and Le Meridien New Orleans and the Paramount Hotel in New York City.
