Born in N.Ireland in 1986, David Irwin graduated in Three Dimensional Design at Northumbria University in 2007. He completed a fellowship on the Designers in Residence initiative at Northumbria’s School of Design in 2010 and subsequently went on to establish his own Industrial design Studio in 2011.

The studio’s design focus is rooted in material exploration and driven by a desire to assign purpose to both traditional and contemporary manufacturing processes. The goal with all of Irwin’s work is to combine a strong concept with fundamental usefulness.
