DAVID GECKELER ON THE DESIGN
”The Danish simplicity and the iconic expression is combined with a classic perception of a solid barstool. The shape of Nerd barstool invites the user to sit on the stool from several angles, helped by the soft, curvy plywood shell. The low backrest of the barstool gives a pleasant support and comfort.”

studied industrial design in Berlin and Copenhagen. Currently, he is exploring the wider area of industrial design, focusing on furniture, interior, tableware & lighting. His chair design “Nerd” was honoured by Beckers International Design Award 2011 and is the winner of Muuto Talent Award 2012.
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 my objects to furnish my objects with 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
