About Me

Daniel Veenboer is an Industrial Design Engineer specialising in the field of ecological design, a biomimetic approach to design that harnesses living processes to create systems that are efficient and essentially waste free. He is an accomplished designer, adept at bridging the gap between the fields of ecological engineering, sustainable agriculture, industrial design and architecture. As a certified permaculturist, Daniel’s vision is to apply the patterns, flows and relationships found in nature to create holistic agro-ecosystems that encompass the triple bottom line. He has honed his skills through an interdisciplinary ensemble of projects, including an urban farm for Noma, a modular Research Greenhouse and the Urban Nature Exhibition for Københavns Museum.

Design for Sustainability. I believe that product innovation is directly linked to sustainability. It is this principle that motivates me to strive for a balance between social, economic, and environmental cohesion in all of my projects. 

Integrated Food Systems. I have dedicated thousands of hours of research to developing a holistic understanding of trends, practices and technologies linked to this topic.

Concept Development / R&D. I thrive in the front-end innovation phase of a project, when design specifications and user needs are explored and translated into novel solutions to existing problems. 

CAD / Prototyping / Photography / Graphic Design. You can count on my 3D modelling, physical prototyping, photography, and graphic design skills when it comes to refining the visual identity of a project, presenting ideas to clients and creating stunning aesthetics.
