Daniel Rybakken (born 1984) is a Norwegian designer, who lives in Gothenburg, Sweden. He studied design at the Oslo School of Architecture and the School of Arts & Crafts in Gothenburg. Both his parents were designers—his mother in fashion and his father in graphic design. His work is quite graphical. As a child, He always wanted to be an inventor, but he had all these things from his parents: interest in the aesthetic, composition, and what design communicates, what with his father working with identities for big companies. In 2008 Rybakken started his own practices in Oslo and Gothenburg. Applying himself to the study and replication of natural daylight, Rybakken creates poetic products and installations whose subtlety contradicts the rigorous approach to technology and engineering that goes into their making. He has received numerous awards, including Red Dot Award (2007), Bruno Mathsson Award (2011), Compasso d’Oro (2014 and 2016) and Wallpaper* Design Award (2017).
