David Bentheim is a dynamic yet thoughtful designer whose work is invariably modern ‘with an eclectic twist’. He likes to describe his designs as ‘creative couture’, insisting that individuality for residential schemes requires myriad, personalised solutions. He’s also a firm believer that good client relationships improve the creative process. The bottom line? ‘For me, each design has to be fresh.’


David studied at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Israel, then took a masters degree at the Royal College of Art. He launched his Kensington practice in 1989 and has wide experience in hotel and restaurant design. With his team of two interior designers and three architects, he also works on private homes and has undertaken several hospital projects.


Right now, David is working on homes in Knightsbridge, South Kensington, Hampstead and Belgravia. He’s recently completed an apartment in Majorca and a Battersea penthouse, as well as the interior design for a maternity suite at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.
