Dave Taylor

Dave Taylor is an artist and designer based in Stockholm. Originally from Falkirk, Taylor moved to Sweden where he studied in the metals department of Konstfack University, one of the leading arts and design universities in Europe. After graduating in 1999 he set up his own studio and has gone on to win various accolades such as the Red Dot award. 

Taylor’s work is often immediately recognisable due to the use of materials such as brass, copper and concrete all of which can be seen to feature heavily. These playful material explorations create striking and juxtaposed objects that couple post industrial waste such as salvaged stone and concrete with precisely machined and uniform metals.
