The dynamic New York borough is where David Weeks founded his namesake studio in 1996, in a repurposed factory building. He became a founding member of an emerging local scene that would go on to shape the face of American design.
Weeks moved to New York after college with the intention of becoming a painter. It was a formative apprenticeship with jewellery designer Ted Muehling that inspired his shift from fine art to functional objects.
Since founding the studio, Weeks has designed all genres of product, but early on was lauded for his innovative and poetic lighting fixtures— conceived as sculptures. H
In 2013, Weeks fulfilled a creative need for expansion once again by opening a storefront space, a move that allowed him to represent his own work—and display it in a manner that best represents his vision. The Tribeca location has brought renewed attention to the full spectrum and diversity of David Weeks Studio’s work while allowing for new creative investigations.
