Djivan Schapira

Djivan Schapira is the 25-year old founder of ABDB Designs, and a 2016 graduate of the Architectural Program at Parsons School of Design. The son of an established and highly skilled maker of custom furniture, Antoine Schapira, Djivan moved from France to New York at the age of 6, and would become an apprentice to his father at the age of 10. What would become a 14-year apprenticeship has allowed Djivan to master the hand skills and artisanal techniques required to produce exquisite furniture far in advance of his years.
