#CrossPollinator: Francis Bitonti

 Francis Bitonti

#Introduction: How would you best describe your work?

The future of materials and consumer products/experiences through the capacities afforded to us by additive manufacturing.


Q1) #CrossPollination: What does it mean to you?

It’s about unanticipated results.

 Q2)  #Process: What kind of people and industries do you exchange ideas with? 

We talk to every walk of life from software developers to chemical engineers. We are working on complex projects that can not be solved by a traditional design team. 

Q3) #Innovation: What new technologies and techniques do you use? 

3D Printing, these days we are focusing hard on developing techniques for printing with conductive printing. 

Q4 )  #DreamCollaboration: With whom and why? 

I don’t have ideal situations like this every client and collaboration is an opportunity to do something amazing if that weren’t the case I wouldn’t take on the project.

Q5) #TheFuture: Where do you see your work 10 years from now? 

I am more worried about the change I want to see in the work in the next five years. I want to bring design and materials into the information age.
