3D printing has changed how designs are prototyped. Can it change how final products are made too? In this session, Gantri founder Ian Yang will be chatting with Chris Granneberg, a renowned LA-based industrial designer, about where the design industry is heading and how Gantri uses 3D printing to facilitate design entrepreneurship.
In collaboration with SF Design Week, Gantri and Chris Granneberg have created a limited edition light that will be raffled off during the session. All proceeds goes to supporting AIGA and their continuing work for the design community.
Chris is a product designer with significant experience in user experience and design strategy. A graduate of the Pratt Institute School of Design, he worked for Karim Rashid and PepsiCo before founding his own studio. He aims to create thoughtful, honest, and desirable products, and he specializes in product, packaging, furniture, lighting and tabletop design.
Ian is the founder and CEO of Gantri, a manufacturing platform for modern designs. Gantri offers independent designers a simple way to create designs and sell directly to consumers. All products are made using 3D printing. Since launching with Table Lights in October 2017, Gantri has been featured in Design Milk, Dwell, Yanko, Core77 and more.
