David Derksen graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2009 and completed a master's degree in Industrial Design at TU Delft in 2011.
Nature, and especially the principles and processes found in nature, are the main sources of inspiration for David Derksen. This results in a strong focus on materials, how they behave and how they can be constructed. According to David Derksen , producing objects is playing with the forces of nature. In his designs he tries to express the beauty of the material and the way it is produced.
