Mr David Weatherhead


I am Course Leader for Product & Furniture Design MA.

I work with brands such as across product, lighting and furniture collections.

My broader experience spans consultancy, collaborative projects, and commissions for Arco, BlackBerry, Conran Shop, Design Museum, Dorchester Collection, Ettinger, Museo Nacional Del Prado, Seletti, Teroforma, Unilever, Urban Outfitters, and Wagamama.

I have exhibited at the London Design Festival and the Milan Furniture Fair.

The Eco-Design Handbook, Elle Decoration, Dezeen, FT, The Guardian, Icon, LSN: Global, and Wallpaper* magazine have featured my designs.

I have taught at the Royal College of Art (UK), Krabbesholm Højskole (Denmark), and Cambridge School of Visual & Performing Arts (UK). I created and led the 'Time Is Now' project with Krabbesholm Højskole concluding with an exhibition at 3 Days of Design, Copenhagen, Denmark, 2019. In March 2022, I was invited back to Krabbesholm Højskole to create and lead a new project spanning learning, teaching, and an exhibition.
