Principal, Lynda Chesser, brings an interior designer’s perspective to furniture solutions created by CSD Studio. She believes good design can inspire people to live, work, and learn better.
"We pursue good design every day, by combining observation and understanding with art and technology to create human-centered furniture solutions."
Bill Schacht, Principal, and Chad Zimmerman, Design Director, complete the CSD team, bringing their industrial design talents and manufacturing knowledge to each product design. Their industrial design expertise combines with Lynda’s interiors viewpoint creating relevant and adaptable furniture solutions to manufacture.
This multi-discipline team takes products from conception to completion. Each project starts with a conceptual phase, integrating research and customer programming with understanding and product criteria development. Their collaborative workstyle includes brainstorming, sketching, and problem-solving sessions followed up by 3-D modeling, rendering, and prototyping of designs.
CSD Studio works closely with their manufacturing partners providing a high level of documentation, development, marketing, and sales support for their designs. Lynda is involved in every aspect of this process while managing client relations and consulting on tailored furniture solutions. CSD’s team has created solutions for many companies over the years, including Toyota, Goldman Sacs, Bank Fund, State Street Bank, and ESPN.
