David Patton, IDSA
Vice President of Product Design | Vari
Chair, IDSA Dallas-Fort Worth Chapter | 2021
David has a passion for creating innovative and transformative product solutions, grounded in the importance of experimentation, speed, and staying connected with your materials. One of the most pivotal moments in his career was when his boss came to him for a solution to ease his back pain. The sit-stand desk he created and co-invented became the original VARIDESK product. Now, he leads Product Design for VARI. His team crafts solutions that reinvent workspaces and help people lead happier, healthier, and more productive lives. David has been designing products for more than 20 years across multiple industries. Those experiences have taught him to value workshop-focused design practices with a focus on teamwork and shared learning.
