Welcome To Episode 30 of Your Story.
Today we talk with David Shaw who as an Industrial Designer with his company Street and Garden Furniture Company shares a little of the life of an industrial designer. We talk of what design is for him with his early attempts at being a manufacturer to eventually realise that designing and out sourcing manufacturing is a better business model.
He mentions his efforts to help the up and coming new designers which enables him to able to give them a chance through his business. Additionally he plans to use the greater space at his premises for display and art purposes to help other people within the community.
David has been making Street furniture for decades now, starting at Bradington Young leather furniture company, and to my surprise once he started mentioning where it’s been placed around Australia I realised that I’ve been seeing it everywhere for years.
It’s strange for me to know that street lights, bollards, water bubblers and rubbish bins that I’ve walked past with scant regard all come from David and I just through coincidence happen to ask him onto Your Story.
Update: Another great Industrial Design Story is Ep 63 : Craig. Creating the Best Stove Top Espresso Machine from a Classic
