Roosegaarde: Dutch Laboratory of Interactive World

Studio Roosegaarde is a laboratory of Dutch artist Daan Roosegaarde, in which he operates together with a team of designers and engineers. During its scope, the studio has created countless exciting interactive projects, where creators pointed to the relationship between people, technology and space.

Roosegaarde and his team also develop their own inovations and are known primarily for projects as Dune, Smart Highway or Waterlicht.

Dune was introduced already in 2006. It is an „interactive landscape“ that reacts to human behavior. It is made up of fibers that brighten, based on sounds or movements in its surrounding.


Smart Highway introduces a project of interactive roads, that pile up the solar energy during the day and lighten up the sidelines during the night. The projects aims to create smart communication using the light, energy and interaction with the traffic situation. Smart Highway won the Dutch Design Award, Accenture Innovation Award and received the INDEX Award 2013.


Waterlicht is a dreamy landscape depicting the power and poetry of water. It offers visitors a kind of virtual flood and points to the fact how high the water could get without the human intervention. The water level is made up of light waves using the latest LED technology, software and lenses.


The most recent project – called Windlicht – are windmills from a different perspective. It focuses on the beauty of „green energy“ by connecting the blades of mills with lines of light. The inspiration for Roosegaarde´s projects was the Dutch village Kinderdijk with its windmills from the 18th century. He perceives them as a perfect example of Dutch innovation. As Roosegaarde said: “Windlicht creates the missing link between the Dutch and the beauty of our new landscape.”


The Danish artist and innovator Daan Roosegaarde (1979) is also the author of a book called Interactive Landscapes, which offers a complete survey of his interactive artworks, revealing the line of development of his oeuvre.
