Davis Allen
(1916-1999)
Davis Allen joined Skidmore, Owing and Merrill (SOM) in 1950 as a junior architectural designer. He had hoped to find a secure job where he could expect to stay at least five years. He actually had found a home.
In the intervening forty years, and since 1965 with the rank of Associate Partner, Senior Interior Designer, Allen collaborated with three generations of SOM partners. Semi-retired since 1985, he has continued to act as a mentor, design critic, and trusted contributor to this multi disciplined architectural firm whose influence has been felt worldwide.
Davis Allen was one of the talented few responsible for the emergence of interior design as a real profession in post-World War II America. Educated at Brown University, the Kungliga Tekniska in Sweeden and Yale University, Allen worked at the Knoll Planning Unit. He also worked in the offices of industrial designer Raymond Loewy and the architecture firm of Harrison and Abramowitz, which served as master planners for the United Nations and Lincoln Center, among other sites. Subsequently, Allen was longtime director of interiors for Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. He designed furniture for Steelcase, GF, Stow Davis, Bernhardt, Stendig and Hickory Business Furniture and was elected to the Interior Design Hall of Fame.
