WHAT INSPIRES US
THE INCREDIBLE DAAN ROOSEGAARD
by Lexy / in Innovation
When introduced to the work of artist and innovator Daan Roosegaarde I wasn’t sure what my favourite idea was.
Could it be the Van Gogh Cycle Path lighting the way to end the need for streetlights, the Smart Highway which does similar for road travel or perhaps the Smog Free Park Project, creating clearer skies and fresher air in urban areas?
I've decided it’s the Sustainable Dance Floor where the energy used to sustain the party comes kinaesthetically from the dancers themselves. Best of all, his designs are not only green but useful and beautiful to look upon. He ticks all the design boxes.

WHAT CAN WE LEARN FROM THIS ARTIST INNOVATOR?
More than anything Roosegaarde shows us how a creative mind can look at a situation or a problem and find an opportunity. Interested in reducing carbon output from street lights led him to come up with the Van Gogh Cycle Path. The problems with smog in China led him and his team to come up with the Smog Free Park.
