  About his Furniture

David Lynch has been designing furniture secretly for years. In April 1997 he presented a furniture collection at the world's most important and famous furniture exhibition, the Salone del Mobile in Milan, Italy. His furniture is being produced and distributed by casanostra ag, a Swiss company. Some of his furniture can also be seen in his 1997 release Lost Highway (the small table in the Madison House and the VCR case).

David Lynch

"Design and music, art and architecture – they all belong together."

"I don't want to appear like some all-round talent. Not at all. I just inevitably get involved with different things. I started out being a painter. And like many painters I was looking for a new challenge. Because it is not easy to make money with art. After all, just to build canvas stretchers, and stretch a canvas you get involved with a lot of tools. And one thing always leads to another: Pretty soon I was building things.
It's a special outlook. You build your own world. And, in my case, my father always had a workshop in the house and I was taught how to use tools and spent a lot of time in the shop building things, so it all started at a young age."

"Well, when I started [designing furniture] I never really thought of myself as a furniture designer. I would just get an idea and build something. In art school I started building things based on my own designs. And then things kind of went from there."

"I day-dream of furniture, yes."

"...films, paintings, furniture, ect. are all based on ideas. You get an idea. And then you're hooked. Not to forget: I love building. And building is as important as designing, because many times design grows as one is building.
