David would wax lyrical about chairs for days and weeks on end. Their “geometry needs to be absolutely perfect, so you can sit in it and lean and relax and never feel unsafe, always comfortable”.
That he achieved this time and time again while designing some truly audacious bespoke seating is a testament to his fearless and indefatigable approach.
According to David, the primary purpose of a table was to “Raise the cloth from the floor”. Beyond that, where a designer takes it is limited only by their imagination and self belief.
Award winning and elegant, David’s cabinet designs are fluid and exciting, often incorporating his trademark flair for dynamic curves.
