David Yepez, Raven Wingback Chair, USA, 2019
David Yepez’s Raven Chair is a chimerical play on the classic wingback design. Featuring diamond button tufting and rolled arms, the chair’s sculpted bronze feet and arm plates are plated in glittering 24ct gold for an ultra luxe look. The chair is available for commission with many options of metal finishing.
David Yepez’s work explores the contemporary shift toward futurism while maintaining the aesthetics of traditional craftsmanship and design. He focuses on seamlessly merging physical and digital worlds through experimentation with both materials and fabrication methods, often integrating technology in surprisingly subtle ways. Incorporating innovative modern techniques during the design process, such as 3D printing as a starting point for cast bronze, his work bridges the aspirations of technology with time-honored shapes and forms.
Yepez received a BFA from SVA in New York, and is an instructor demonstrating traditional craftsmanship with Lie Nielson Toolworks. He also is a board member of the Creative Tech Innovation Council in New York.
