The Dutch designer Daan Mulder will show his elegantly sculptured designs at Salone del Mobile 2011.
Lancia TrendVisions magazine describes his work as follows: “He has managed to merge aesthetics with functionality in futuristic steel curves, which become structure and ornament. Fluid and fine, with an almost liquid texture, the armchair waves before your eyes and accommodates you in full comfort. The metal curves softly to follow the anatomical design as you sit. This is the “My Form Follows Function Sofa”, Mulder’s latest creation presented at the “Young Talent 2010” in Nieuw Roden (Holland). This sofa epitomises the philosophy of this young design promise, whose motto is to “integrate dynamic curves with extreme functionality”. It looks easy, but you really have to be a visionary.
Having graduated from the Wood and Cabinet making College of Amsterdam, Daan attended the prestigious Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague, and concluded his studies with the award for his final project. He currently lives and works in Amsterdam where, among other things, he has designed the interiors of the Maritime Museum.
His talent was already clear in his project for a night-club, “Club Wave”. The wavy structure hosts a dance floor and an outside restaurant for dancers to take a well-earned rest. We are comforted and reassured by the fact that, even in the most bizarre and futuristic project, you can still be functional. Get on the dance floor and Daan Mulder’s lights will dance with you to the rhythm of the music.”
