Originally from Athens, Georgia, David Weeks moved to Providence to study at the respected Rhode Island School of Design. He moved to NYC upon graduation with the intention of becoming a painter.
He found himself as an apprentice to jewellery designer Ted Muehling instead, and it was through this experience he discovered a deep affinity with metalwork, shifting his focus from art to design objects.
In 1996, he founded 'David Weeks Studio' as a vehicle for his experiments across many disciplines, from metalwork and woodwork to contemporary toy culture. His products are diverse, ranging from wooden toys such as the Mr B developed in conjunction with e15 furniture, to his sculptural lighting pieces.
