FOC TALENT: David van der Veldt

About David van der Veldt

My name is David van der Veldt and I have been brought up in the city of Haarlem in the Netherlands. After wanting to become an astronaut i wanted to become furniture maker and inventor. So my background is carpenter and specialized as a furniture maker. In 2004 i started my education at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam witch I finished in June 2009. I studied at DesignLab department witch is more to the design field but not the hardcore industrial design. Now it feels like I am more and more become a inventor as I wanted as a little boy.


After working as a furniture maker and interior builder, I became very handy and worked with my technical insight and skills. With these skills and experience i started to work a year ago with a 3D program such as Rhino. I loved the freedom of working in space without gravitation, it felt like claying.
