Commercial Success by Design
Vintage-Industrial Design by GBi: The Authentic, American-Touch for Your Space
At GBi, we take pride in offering a unique and authentic, vintage-industrial style of design, for any business that looks to create the perfect consumer/user experience (safe, effective, profitable & memorable). 1. We have had significant success with our very unique, seating & dining line of products (based-on The Original Swing-out Seat, which also tucks-under, when not in use). The custom design of this product makes it the best space-saving solution on the market, great for any high-traffic environment or busy space (especially where safety, flow and efficiency are all key factors). 2. Our modular shelving system, originally designed for retail merchandising, is a beautiful and sturdy storage option (with wall mounted / floor mounted options). This also makes for a very-versatile display system, ideal for just about any commercial space. We have added to this product, expanding an almost endless array of options. Today the system often includes lighting & components for other electronics (commercial TV screens, audio speakers, security cameras, etc.), desks & work-spaces, cubby & cabinets, and so much more.
In an effort to help our clients creatively plan and strategically execute, we’ve also expanded our services. Now we are providing a collaborative turn-key solution, our own in-house Design & Consulting Services. This helps by providing a “Partner” level approach for projects of all sizes. We will be there to help shepherd the project with you, from the early stages of ideation through to the final stages of installation & build-out. If your project has already begun yet, you can’t find what is that you need, well this is where we shine. We can come-in seamlessly, to support you and your team(s). Our industry reach is vast and deep. We will work tirelessly to get you what you need when you need it.

Client-Specific Consulting Tailored To All Kinds of Commercial Projects: Corporate, Retail, Hospitality, Food & Bev... Your Team's Experience Truly Matters
Our design consulting services are centered around the clients needs, timing & budget. The greatest degree of value (for our clients), comes from years of hands-on experience, creating one-of-kind, custom-built furniture pieces, commercial furnishings, key decor items, functional work-spaces, creative lighting solutions and then, if needed, replicating those designs for every locations. Sometimes, that is done is all in one building (ie. a 50 story luxury hotel in NYC, with literally hundreds of rooms), or it is in various locations (ie. all over the US), or in some cases, it is much larger than that with our global clients (ie. who have locations in every major city, on 6 of the 7 continents). Our design services are customized to meet even the most specific parameters of a project, including the uniqueness of the brand, the overall experience, and even the minute factors required for certain products (ie. when it comes to custom designed seating, dining & lighting). We also understand the nuances behind managing the supply side of things, and when managing both the client’s expectations and the team’s perceptions becomes vitally important. We also understand how to manage through the ever-changing, dynamics and unforeseen circumstances, when it comes to large scale construction projects and juggling the production of key products that require custom installations. These are just a few of the more common examples. Your project may have to face a myriad of challenges, the good thing is you don’t have to do it alone. Whether you’re a hotel, restaurant, pub, retailer, luxury boutique chain, or a corporate business, we have the experience needed.
We provide a comprehensive list of our design & consulting services (detailed at the bottom of this page). Our services can help with space planning, interior design, custom furniture design, visual merchandising and much more. We can assist with the floor plan & proper layout, lighting design, custom fixtures, more-useful furniture design and other design elements, all to help enhance the overall experience. Our expertise is truly centered around creating an environment that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing, encouraging folks to spend more time, be more comfortable, be more productive, easily find what it is you need / want, whether it’s for work or play. Simplicity can be beautiful & great design should always be accessible.
