David Graas — Amsterdam, Netherlands

“I see a challenge in looking at ordinary materials, or better, materials that are not perceived as valuable and change that around. Looking for the extra-ordinary in the ordinary is also a way to maximize my own influence.”

A graduate of the product-design course at Gerrit Rietveld Art Academy in Amsterdam, Graas believes that design as a tool for seduction, as a purely cosmetic exercise, has had its day. His curiosity is the source of new ideas that produces work, finding excitement in not knowing how or when it will come.
