It was in Milan that David was given an opportunity to work with British designer George Sowden of the renowned Memphis design movement. During his time with Sowden in Milan, David also collaborated with designer Jerszy Seymour, whom he assisted with several exhibitions both in Milan and Paris.

David Caon founded his studio in Sydney, in 2009. A creative design practice, CAON excels at applying design thinking to industrial proces. CAON projects range from aircraft interiors to tableware, from architecture to furnishings for workplace and the home.
