David Heinz Gumbel (given name was Detlev Heinz. He was born inSinsheim, Germany to a secular family among the pioneers of the local silversmith industry. In 1918, the Gumbels relocated toHeilbronnwhere David worked as an apprentice in the "Bruckmann & Sons" factory, becoming a certified steel engraver.
In the late 1920's, Gumbel studied to be a silversmith at the school of applied arts in Berlin at theKunstgewerbeschule. Following his studies, Gumbel was employed at workshops as well as in the family factory in Heilbronn. It was there that Gumbel began to design hand-made silver pieces in the modern style. Simultaneously, he produced Jewish ritual objects like a Chanukah menorah or candlesticks. Gumbel utilized polished silver and other materials, such as ivory, in his works.
In 1936, Gumbel left Germany for Land of Israel and joined the "New Bezalel" as a teacher and the administrator of the metal department, alongsideLudwig Yehuda Wolpert. Once in theLand of Israel, Gumbel began to work withtypography, ostensibly as a result of Wolpert's influence.

Gumbel retired from his work at Bezalel in 1955. Gumbel have left at his will, the continuetion of his creation to the artist Malka Cohavi, his assistent and teacher at Bezalel Academy of Art and Design.
