David Furman (American)

David Furman, a prominent Charlotte architect and developer, has always been a builder, designing and creating structures over the last 40 years. Extending this life-long mission of building, Furman began creating innovative sculptural assemblages, in an abandoned building in downtown Charlotte.

Inspired by the work of Louise Nevelson, Furman’s work disassembles common, everyday found objects, including furniture, all made from wood of various types; then reassembles these shapes, sometimes adapting the pieces into new shapes, to design a new structure. The new composition is then painted monochrome to connect the variation into one, singular, piece of ‘architecture,’ and sometimes left unpainted to expose the bare bones of the structure.
