Michele Kolb's professional experience includes working for some of the most prestigious design firms in the USA and Switzerland: George Nelson & Associates; Pentagram Design; Stieger Partners; Gwathmey Siegel and Associates; and Vignelli Associates, where she was Vice President of Interior Design for 7 years. Educated at Parsons School of Design and Columbia University, Michele's visual sense is both acute and versatile. Her aesthetic includes traditional as well as clean, contemporary design. A registered architect, Michele began her private practice in 1987. Prior experience at these well known firms, each multidisciplinary in their approach to design, provided the base for her to direct architecture, interior design, signage, and graphic design projects as a managing architect; and to develop the product line for Belongings, an interior design showroom and retail store.
