David Beker is a contemporary designer, craftsperson and artist. Drawing from his experience as an architect and digital artist, his three-dimensional projects exist in a space between the functional furniture and abstract sculpture. David maintains a true, one-person studio, and each piece is designed and executed by him using traditional hand and power tools.
His sculptures draws inspiration from the deep cultural meaning of recognizable structures. These elements are combined and arranged to create a new composition that challenges the understanding of the object’s original meaning. David’s furniture begins with the creation of simple, symmetrical and recognizable forms. Those forms are then wrapped and suspended within a dynamic and asymmetrical painted wooden framework. It is the contrast between the simple regular volumes and the complex chaotic lines of the framework that creates a dynamic composition that is unified and whole.
