Daniel Rybakken

Born in Oslo, Norway, Daniel Rybakken studied design at the Oslo School of Architecture and the School of Arts & Crafts in Gothenburg, Sweden. After graduating in 2008, he opened his own studio, mainly working from Oslo and Gothenburg. Rybakken has received numerous awards, including the Best of the Best Red Dot Award in Singapore, 2007, the Anders Jahre’s Cultural Prize for Young Artists in Oslo, 2008, the Design Report Award for best designer at Salone Satellite in Milan, 2009, and more recently the prestigious Bruno Mathsson Award in 2011. His designs – from limited edition pieces, art installations to prototypes for serial production – oscillate between art and design and often concentrate on the theme of daylight and how to artificially recreate its appearance and subconscious effect.
