Each material has its own particular talent. I don’t try to put contrasting materials together in order to express a philosophy, the materials are pretty clear with me when they want to become a form or not, so maybe that’s the philosophy, listen to what the materials want to do.

David Wiseman was born in California in 1982. He studied furniture design at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in Providence. After receiving his BFA in 2003, Wiseman lived in New York City for two years, where he worked for the designer Todd Oldham.

In 2005, Wiseman moved to Los Angeles to set up his own studio, where he designs interior installations inspired by the natural world. In addition to designing for private residences, Wiseman has designed site-specific installations for Christian Dior stores in Shanghai and New York, and the West Hollywood Public Library.

Wiseman’s work is included in private collections, has appeared in numerous publications, and was selected for “Design Life Now,” the 2006 Design Triennial at the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum in New York City. Wiseman is represented on the east coast by the New York design gallery, R20th Century.
