Home Press Release Obituary: Former ASID president Brigham

Washington, D.C. – Bruce James Brigham, interior designer and former American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) president, passed away on July 8, 2014. He was 63.

An award-winning interior designer and industry leader, his more than 400 design projects spanned the globe and ranged from the redesign of 180 Cartier boutiques worldwide and the retail designs for TSL Jewellery in Hong Kong to the remodeling of the Seattle SuperSonics Courtside Club.

Brigham was an ASID fellow and served as president of the ASID board of directors from 2008 to 2009. He also was a member of the Institute of Store Planners (ISP) and the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES). An accomplished writer and speaker, he was a frequent contributor to various design and industry publications and often was called upon to share his design expertise at conferences and trade shows including NeoCon, Surfaces and the ASID National Conference.

“Bruce was an inspiration to many at ASID,” said Randy Fiser, ASID executive vice president and CEO. “One of his favorite expressions — ‘Who remembers anything ordinary’ — is one we use often. It exemplifies the passion for living he shared with everyone around him. During his tenure as ASID president, he pushed the Society to be extraordinary and for that we are indebted to him.”

In lieu of flowers, his family requests donations be made in Brigham’s name to the ASID Foundation.
