Artist Profile


Born 1986, Perth, Western Australia

Product designer Lilian van Daal bridges with her work the natural and the artificial – or designed – world. She experiments with innovative technologies and materials in order to meticulously mimic nature. With the resulting objects she aspires to reveal nature’s rich library of solutions. The emphasis is on the imitation and adjustment of structures to optimize production methods in a sustainable way.

With this as a starting point she won several awards like: Public Award Ontwerp en Innovatieprijs Gelderland, the Volvo Design Challenge 2015 and the Bio Art and Design Award 2016. In 2018 she was selected as one of the design talents by the Creative Industries.

Her work has been exhibited in a large part of Europe, South America, North America and in The Netherlands. In 2017 a sustainable concept for car seating ‘Shapes of Sweden’ has been acquired by the Centre Pompidou in Paris, France. Over the years she has worked for Studio Drift, Feiz Design, Bleijh Concept & Design and StudioMOM. Her educational background covers as well Industrial Product Design as a conceptual postgraduate course at the Royal College of Art – The Hague.
