DvdG Designs/ David van der Gulik.
At the end of trans-Asia bicycle journey in the late 1980's, David landed in Bali and fell in love with all things old wood. After years of sourcing and selling Javanese Antiques, he tried his hand at design and found a new love in working with the characters and textures of old and antique tropical hardwoods, mainly Teak and Ironwood. Working with a group of devoted local craftsmen, David and his team have spent the past twelve years on a journey to bring new life to old wood, guided by the principles of Organic Architecture, creating harmony between function, form, and beauty.
David's near-manic attention to detail and devotion to his art has earned him a reputation as the finest woodworking studio in Bali.
