Together with fashion designer Iris van Herpen, Daniel has taken his first steps on the catwalk. At the 2010 edition of Amsterdam International Fashion Week, he presented a collection of organic shapes and asymmetric proportions that we would normally expect to see in items of design or architecture, only this time these futuristic shell-like installations were gracefully worn by models.

Daniel is somewhat specialised in digital design and the sophisticated software that comes with it. His digitally-enhanced cutting-edge styles are a result of research utilising alternative fabrics and techniques, resulting in objects such as L. Bowl in melted down aluminium, or his Brazil chair, made out of laser-cut laminated wood. The generative aesthetics in all his creations recall the work of Zaha Hadid. An approach that first and foremost expresses pleasure and independence in all its forms. His projects combine digital technology and aesthetics inspired by biology as well as advanced and highly adaptable engineering concepts.
