Daniel’s studio now works in a broad range of fields, including sculpture, fashion, furniture design, and architecture. Embracing digital systems since its early days, the studio holds a unique position in the field and is widely recognized for the tectonic and material complexity generated by his process of form research.

Daniel has received international critical acclaim and has been published and exhibited at, among others, the Victoria and Albert Museum and, on the occasion of the 9th ArchiLab edition, the Frac Centre.
