Back to Our People

Michael Bonomo, NCIDQ, IIDA, ASID

Director of Global Workplace


I see every project as a personal challenge to create inspiring spaces that catalyze dynamic, agile change and moments of surprise. Each project is a unique opportunity to rethink our design process and how we can most positively impact people’s well-being, health and attitude about where they live, work and interact. These opportunities inspire me. Our clients inspire me. The possibilities we uncover together always motivate me to push our thinking even further.

An innovative design leader who has led over 15 million sf of interior environments in workplace crossing tech, commercial, retail and experiential spaces, Michael directs CannonDesign’s global workplace practice and co-leads the company’s commercial market.

Fueled by complex transformation projects that push himself and his teams beyond the ordinary, Michael has worked with dynamic companies including Square, LinkedIn, Atlassian, Bloomberg, Honeywell, Kate Spade, Huffington Post and Spotify among many others. The results are innovative, inspiring, versatile and award-winning.

Michael is also a key industry voice, regularly speaking at events and authoring thought leadership. He is also passionate about mentorship and inspiring everyone he works with to flex their creative muscles as they create memorable solutions that advance culture, talent and business.
