David Dear

An inveterate tinker and inventor, David Dear dreams up products with a sense of humor - never sacrificing sensible design, of course. He has translated his knack for whimsy into award-winning products such as Kim the Talking Clock. With their clever simplicity, his products have been featured in Vogue, New York and Time, among other publications.

Born in Connecticut in 1963, Dear grew up in the 'burbs of the big city, and studying Industrial Design at Rhode Island School of Design. He now lives and works in New York City.
