Born in N.Ireland in 1986, David Irwin graduated in Three Dimensional Design at Northumbria University in 2007. He completed a fellowship on the Designers in Residence Programme at Northumbria’s School of Design in 2010 and subsequently went on to establish his own Industrial design Studio in 2011.
As a practice David Irwin works for leading manufacturers and design led companies such as Habitat, Deadgood and Gardiner Richardson and operates specifically within the spectrum of contemporary furniture, product and lighting design.
The studio’s design focus is rooted in material exploration and driven by a desire to assign purpose to both traditional and contemporary manufacturing processes. The goal with all of David Irwin’s work is to combine a strong concept with fundamental usefulness.
