Ask 555 founder James Geier what he likes best about his business, and he’ll say, "developing environments that affect people’s emotions." He and partner Paul Ohadi do that in spades, with their custom designs for the world’s leading retailers, hotels and casinos. Their Automatic contemporary furniture division features their award-winning stainless steel sling chair and ottoman, which are complemented by other stainless steel pieces—benches, club chairs, lamps, folding screens and even a dog kennel. 555 also manufactures pieces for other designers. Automatic furniture is featured in showrooms across the country.
