DAVID GECKELER ON HIS DESIGN PHILOSOPHY
“My way of design is affected by an attentive and analytical view on the environment. The principles I'd like in my objects are simplicity, detail-orientation and a pinch of courageous design language. The excitement during the creation process goes along with a wish for a sensible interaction between the future owner and the object. To me, after a first impression, it is the long-standing fascination for an object or product that consitutes good design.”
DAVID GECKELER ON NEW NORDIC DESIGN
“To me, Nordic design is unique in terms of tradition well approved quality. It is fascinating to see how a new generation of young designers transform this heritage. A high degree of respect and appreciation towards this specific design with its traditional background is the perfect foundation to leverage Nordic design into the next generation.”
