Dutch artist and innovator Daan Roosegaarde is internationally known for creating social designs exploring the relationship between people, technology, and space.
Based in the Netherlands and Shanghai, Studio Roosegaarde is the social design lab with his team of designers and engineers. With projects ranging from fashion to architecture, his interactive designs such as Dune, Smart Highway and Waterlicht are tactile high-tech environments in which viewer and space become one.
Roosegaarde’s professional mission is to create the missing links between bullshit and beauty, between fantasy and budget. This connection, established between ideology and technology, results in what he calls 'techno-poetry'.
