About the Designer
Derrick is a furniture designer and artist with a BFA in Furniture Design from Herron School of Art and Design in Indianapolis, IN. His current work originates from the arena of sustainability and repurposing of materials. This culminated recently in a solo show ofbookwork furniture - furniture created largely of reclaimed discarded library books. Derrick does not limit his work to furniture, but also creates prints, paper, books, and Shaker boxes - always looking for ways to combine traditional craft techniques with new ideas.
