After graduating from the Architectural Association Daniel Widrig worked for several years with Zaha Hadid where he was significantly involved in designing some of Hadid’s most iconic buildings and products. In 2009 he founded his studio in London.
Daniel Widrig’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 considered to be in the vanguard of digital art and design.
By incorporating advanced technology and 3D modelling, Widrig produces works that push boundaries and challenge preconceived notions. He defies disciplinary constraints by borrowing tools from different industries and using them in exciting and unexpected ways. Widrig’s expertise in computer simulation processes and special effects technologies enables him to create sculptural 3D-printed craftwork, resulting in intricate glass or recycled plastic sculptures and furniture with elegant, undulating surfaces like the “Peeler” chair.
His art has received international critical acclaim and his works have been exhibited in renowned institutions across the world, including the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow, and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
