David Nosanchuk is an inspired American designer based in New York City. His early studies at the Cranbrook Academy, Michigan’s historic arts community, imbedded in Nosanchuk the methods and traditions of modern design that continue to inform his process.
Nosanchuk earned a degree in art history at University of Michigan, moving to Los Angeles shortly thereafter to pursue a Masters of Architecture at Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc.) In Los Angeles, Nosanchuk became a master woodworker, designing and constructing furniture, and eventually teaching furniture fabrication.
In 2000, Nosanchuk launched his first furniture and lighting collection at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair where his N1 table lamp received one of five Best in Show. In 2012, an iteration of the lamp was permanently installed on the Cranbrook campus, where Nosanchuk has been commissioned to design more unique decorative elements. The fixture has also been shown at the Museum of the City of New York and the Museum of Arts and Design, as well as featured in The New York Times, Dwell, and Interior Design. A more recent 3D printed light series, entitled “hex link’ is part of the current Museum of Art and Design’s show on digital art and design, “Out of Hand.”
Nosanchuk is collaborating with both manufacturers and producers of the latest LED and OLED technologies, developing inventive solutions that celebrate light and form.
Following rug designs for Doris Leslie Blau in 2009, Nosanchuk has recently released a collection of rugs for Stark carpet. After debuting in the spring, the collection has been featured in Metropolis, Elle Décor, Interior Design and Luxe Magazine.
Current work includes projects of all scales from residences to the recent launch of wallpaper line, (based on his photographs from Rome and New York) for Flavor Paper. Since its debut the “Super Series” has been featured in the New York Times, Interior Design, Vogue and other well-known publications.
Nosanchuk has also begun collaborations with a number of unique manufacturers in Europe.
