As a former contractor, David Beck has a familiarity and appreciation of the construction materials used in trades. As a designer, it is his goal to elevate these humble (and typically more sustainably produced) materials to a purpose higher than the structural – creating useful objects that reflect their honest beauty.
The simplistic design of these pieces reflect the minimalism David was exposed to living in Asia from 2010 - 2016, whilst also having a flexibility and playfulness that will appeal to the global consumer whose concerns are sustainability and function, as well as form.
