A designer of prototypical machines, devices and tools.

Daniël De Bruin lives and works in Utrecht and Soesterberg (NL) where he unfolds an international design practice of prototypical machines, devices and tools. He studied at the HKU, University of the Arts in Utrecht
His practice is inspired by a deep-rooted, constant curiosity for the functioning and construction of machines and apparatus; regarding both the marvel of their technical aspects and their impact on our lives and surroundings. This attitude was furthermore activated by a ten-year- long engagement as a model maker: a lengthy period of precise and mostly manual activity. There, he experienced the benefits of supportive automation and, in the same time, recognized the absolute necessity of a dedicated human involvement within the processes of creation.
