The Man Behind Morgan's on Fulton: James Geier of 555

September 21, 2015

Morgan's on Fulton, opening this fall in the Fulton Market District, is a one-of-a-kind event space, and Chrome City’s newest client. We’re thrilled to be working with the creative mind behind the space, James Geier, who has worked with highly esteemed brands such as Yves Saint Laurent, Valentino, and Hermes. The space is a culmination of over thirty years of Geier's innovative design experience. “It’s more than a space, it’s a place - where people want to be," said Geier.


James Geier graduated from the University of Illinois with a Bachelor's Degree in Industrial Design. He started his design career at Niedermaier where he served as their design director. But Geier was hungry for more, and soon decided to start his own design firm. 555 International Inc., named after Geier's lucky number, launched in 1988. The company has exploded in popularity over the past 27 years and is now a nationally renowned, award-winning design, development, fabrication, and manufacturing firm. 555 International operates in a 300,000 square ft. studio, manufacturing, and finishing location that is home to over 130 employees, including artists, engineers, designers, architects, and craftsmen.


Geier has worked with world famous brands, ranging from sports teams to fashion designers, and everything in between. To name a few, Geier has developed design for the Green Bay Packers, the Dallas Cowboys. the NBA, Gucci, Chanel, A/X Armani Exchange, and Hard Rock Hotels. His work is on display all over the city, as Geier and his team at 555 are also responsible for the development and design of several Chicago hotspots including Girl and the Goat, Perennial Virant, Soho House Chicago, and Hopsmith Restaurant and Bar


Nobody knows the design industry better than Geier, and that is what makes Morgan's on Fulton the premiere event space in Chicago. Morgan's on Fulton offers multiple unique spaces for private events of any size. The sophisticated and industrial aesthetic of the space pays homage to the Fulton Market District's historical meat packing business. Morgan's on Fulton consists of four separate event spaces, each filled with special amenities:


The Rooftop and Penthouse can host up to 250 guests and is perfect for any cocktail party, corporate or casual.



Suite C is perfect if you are looking for an intimate, industrial space. Suite C can hold up to 165 guests and features weathered white plaster walls, raw exposed brick, and wood plank floors. 



The Gallery creates opportunities for local artists and curators to show their creative work for an audience of up to 95 guests. When the Gallery isn't displaying art shows, it will feature pieces designed and developed by 555 International including custom art, furniture, and lighting.



The Studio is designed to keep the party going afterwards with color-changing LED lights, built-in bar, and custom DJ booth for up to 135 guests.



Chrome City is honored to have Morgan's on Fulton as one of our newest clients. For more information and photos, visit their website at
