David Beker is a furniture designer, architect, and artist. His projects have been featured in magazines and art galleries around the country.
His undergraduate studies were in architecture at the University of Maryland, College Park. He then earned an MFA from the Parsons School of Design in Design and Technology. After working in computer visualization, he sought a less ephemeral medium and continued on to complete a Master of Architecture program at the University of Pennsylvania and became a Registered Architect shortly thereafter.
Though he worked in the architecture field for many years, he was consistently drawn to the tactile craftsmanship of woodworking. Creation in the digital realm and the built environment could not compare to the satisfaction and tangible nature of furniture making. David pulls from his digital and architectural experience to enrich his work and that diversity of experience is apparent in his projects. He currently works and resides in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
