Daniel Martinez is a Product/Industrial Designer originally from New Jersey. He is currently studying at Parsons the New School for Design where he is working on a BFA in Product Design. He has always been interested in the way people interact with the things around them and the connections people make to these objects. Through his designs he attempts to express the idea of simple beauty, stripping an object down to its most basic form and function while exploring the connection between creation and construction.
