F+S Designer Sessions

Fresh ideas. A passion for problem solving. An unwavering commitment to innovation. Session attendees had a chance to connect with the F+S Design Studio, a talented team that draws on backgrounds in industrial and textile design to bring the Forms+Surfaces product line to life.

Lead Surfaces Designer

Kati Cesareo is driven by the unconventional. A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design's Textile program, she is driven by a passion for how elements go together. What began with silkscreens and looms now also encompasses cnc mills and turret punches, creating a new way of thinking about patterns and how they relate to design. As Lead Surfaces Designer for Forms+Surfaces, she is constantly required to seek out new technologies and materials, and experiment to no end. The result: unique architectural surfaces that stand on their own in a sea of predictable options.
Senior Industrial Designer

Conor McDonald is a designer who leverages creativity in the name of the bottom line. After graduating from RISD his career has encompassed numerous forms of design and constructive arts. While at Forms+Surfaces he has designed the LEVELe Elevator Interiors and Walls programs, and has worked extensively in developing new materials processes, resulting in such programs as LightPlane Panels.
Design Director

As Design Director for Forms+Surfaces, Adam Tripp oversees Product Design and Development across all F+S product lines. In addition to the project management of new and custom product development, he is continually defining new materials and manufacturing processes that influence the look and feel of the Forms+Surfaces brand. Responsible for some of the most recognizable site furniture, architectural surfaces and door hardware in the F+S catalogue, Adam joined the Forms+Surfaces Design Studio in 2007 and holds a degree in Industrial Design from the Rhode Island School of Design.
