This is my third time here and I love Belgrade’s frustration, it’s exciting. The reason for my visit is also great, because this conference brings a lot of good energy.

Studio Roosegaarde is the social design lab of Dutch artist Daan Roosegaarde and his team of designers and engineers which grow ideas of future landscapes into reality.

Roosegaarde creates interactive designs which explore the dynamic relation between people, technology and space through unique innovations. Internationally acclaimed projects include Dune, Waterlicht and Smog Free Project.

Studio Roosegaarde has been exhibited at the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, Google Zeitgeist, Tate Modern, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, the Tokyo National Museum, and the Victoria & Albert Museum. Roosegaarde has won numerous international innovation awards and his public artworks are commissioned across the world.

Studio Roosegaarde is based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands and has a pop-up studio in Shanghai, China.

Belgrade was an unexpected, inspiring and energizing experience. A very unorthodox & charismatic host, harems of beautiful hostesses, less beautiful speakers with their advantages too (mainly the speaking part) and finally some recognition of my talent as a DJ.  Biomega & KiBiSi colonized Belgrade for a brief moment. Actually, for the first time my KiBiSi partners, Lars Larsen, Bjarke Ingels & I were speaking at the same event – a seal of grandeur I gather. Some day I want to be remembered as the Caliph of Belgrade - & the designer bicycle pioneer.
