Daan graduated cum laude as interior designer at the Royal Academy of Arts in the Hague. Additionaly he has a degree in cabinet making, gained at Hout and Meubileringscollege in Amsterdam.
After finalising his studies, he started his own business and he has specialized in interior designing and custom made furniture.
If not working on assignments, Daan is also working on his own creations. He gained international fame with his Form Follows Function sofa, a sculpture made of steel.
‘I imagined myself a concept with organic and unearthly shapes in order to create a sofa with all functions following one fluent line. The sculpture is created out of 3 plates of steel, 1,5 thick and coated with metallic silver grey paint.’
For furniture making, Daan often teams up with carpentry Jeroen Kool.
Together Jeroen and Daan realize many challenging projects from design to implementation.
For integral design and renovation to business premises, Daan is cooperating with Korfker Architecten.
