The contemporary furniture manufacturer recently announced that Matthew Weatherly has been named Associate Design Director for BDI. Formerly the company’s senior designer, in this new position Weatherly will continue his focus on product design and development, while expanding his role to include management of BDI’s internal design team and external team of independent designers.

Having joined BDI in 2004, Weatherly is the recipient of numerous awards for his designs, including the prestigious Pinnacle Award for Design Achievement in the categories of home entertainment and home office. He is most recognized for his award-winning Corridor collection, along with Sequel Office, the collection that established BDI as a premiere authority on intelligent office design.
