Print the Future, a new technology startup that offers custom 3D printed furniture, has opened a pop-up store in New York City at 325 W. 38th Street. Designed in collaboration with Lori Dennis, top interior designer and star of HGTV's The Real Designing Women, the concept store puts the cutting-edge 3D printing process on display.
"Print the Future is about more than just furniture; it’s about innovation, and making ideas on demand a reality by moving the needle in the 3D printing space, the possibilities being endless,” says Neil Patel, founder and CEO. “We are at the forefront in the 3D printing space and have big visions. What Starbucks is to coffee, Print the Future will be to 3D printing; synonymous with its product.”
All objects printed at the pop-ups will be given away as prizes via the company’s social media channels and in-store visits. Print the Future plans to donate a 3D printed object to a developing country for every piece of furniture printed.
The company, which is currently crowdsourcing funding, plans to open additional pop-ups in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Austin, and Miami once the New York City location closes on March 31. “Innovation moves societies forward,” says Raj Bharti, COO. “Our patrons can bring their own designs and see the furniture created in front of their eyes—that’s quite magical.” Customers will be able to pick from a catalog of ready-to-print designs or create their own, which will be manufactured on-site within 24 hours.
Print the Future will empower everyone around the world to unleash their inner designer. By connecting you with world-renowned designers, the company will let you select and build customized furniture and beautiful home goods delivered faster than it takes for paint to dry.
