Design Story

 
About pL-D

Pam Light and John Duffy’s distinct combination of abilities set pL-D apart from other design service providers. Both partners have worked in the industry sectors that provide the means with which products and interiors come together: product design, interior design, and dealership purchasing.

Pam has a background of 35 plus years as an interior designer, including 10 within a dealership and one as an independent furniture rep. Currently her day-to-day, hands-on involvement at a major architectural interiors firm keeps their products pertinent and meeting the needs of today’s clients and their ever evolving workplace.

John, a degreed designer from Pasadena’s Art Center College of Design, has over 35 years of experience in product design and commercial interiors. During this time he has worked for interior design firms that specialize in hospitality, healthcare, and corporate design, with the last 20 years solely committed to product design and development. The partners’ varied backgrounds are the foundation for a design process that combines thoughtful, useful, creative, and intelligent design for the human environment.


In talking with and listening to our clients about their changing work needs pL-D and Kimball Office teamed together to create a more versatile lounge based system called “Pairings”. The platform can work alone as a simple sofa/lounge group or as a system capable of transforming an open area into a ‘third space’. It was specifically designed to allow designers and clients the ability to craft a space that…
 
  • Works in open and enclosed rooms
  • provides space / acoustical separation in open areas
  • provides power and data distribution
  • can be combined with systems furniture and media for expanded work and meeting options

It is a family of components that can easily be crafted together to create formal or informal settings that support today’s work-play-gather environments.
