The Johnson Studio has specialised in restaurant design for over 25 years. In the mid-1980s, they saw that restaurant patrons were demanding high-quality experiences that were more than great food: the most successful restaurants also had a memorable atmosphere that complemented the food and generated its own buzz.
Within the hospitality industry, we saw a need for unique, high-quality design, deep knowledge of restaurant operations, and fast, flexible turnaround. The Johnson Studio tailored their firm to meet these needs.
The Johnson Studio at Cooper Carry understands the dynamic relationship between food and place – the emotional connection between what is being eaten and where it is being eaten.
For over 25 years, The Johnson Studio at Cooper Carry has brought this philosophy to their work, across the country, in over 500 projects; each one unique, each one a stage setting for a lifetime of memorable experiences.
Cooper Carry was founded in 1960 by Jerry Cooper and Walter Carry. Cooper Carry has had a long and storied 58-year history. Cooper Carry is a creative collective, actively working to break down the traditional walls between studios and building types.
They approach each project as a unique entity and recognize that their work is sometimes a reflection of a changing world and sometimes a herald of it, but that no matter what it is best approached with fresh eyes and an open mind.
Employing diverse skills, The Johnson Studio works closely with clients to create unique and extraordinary spaces. They offer complete design service consultation, conceptual development, architecture and interior design, to lighting design, and furniture purchasing. They engage many talented artists specializing in various metals, glass and woodwork. The Johnson Studio is a hands-on firm where ideas and dreams are brought to reality.
