David Rowe is an independent product and furniture designer with over 20 years of experience in research-led design work. He has a number of designs currently in production, including the new SE range of school seating designed jointly with Richard Snell for Hille.
Seating design with a particular emphasis on postural quality has been a feature of his work in contract furniture, and this is based on the belief that good posture benefits physical and psychological well-being.

He is also a respected teacher having a long and on-going working relationship with Birmingham City University where he was for six years course leader in Furniture Design.
