Where I Work - David Weeks
In this edition of Where I Work, Design Milk visits designer David Weeks at his office and workshop in the DUMBO (that’s “Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass”) neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York. The studio designs lighting that takes cues from mid-century and machine age products, furniture with minimal forms, and fun accessories, including wooden toys with flexible joints.
Weeks, who studied painting at RISD, has been in the building, home to many other artisan-types, since the mid-90s, when he went out on his own after working with jewelry designer Ted Muehling. He recently took on more square footage, and now occupies a light-filled, airy office space with a view of the bridge, in addition to his original down-and-dirty workshop.
We sat down at this very table, under his No. 433 Kopra Burst chandelier, to chat, and then got the grand tour.
