David Whippen

San Francisco, CA

“Sculptor and furniture designer David Whippen (of ShopFloor Design) derives his inspiration from San Francisco and its surrounding communities, both for its innovative art and progressive design culture. Six years ago, Whippen moved his workshop, ShopFloor Design, to the Dogpatch neighborhood, whose industrial past is still evident in the metal bones of its century-old shipyards and dry docks. “Those old pieces of steel, the lasting presence, there’s something almost romantic about it,” he says. “I can’t help but be inspired.” Here, we break down his creative process to see how he melds sculpture and design.”
