Co-founder and Co-CEO
Pierre started his career as a Packaging Engineer for L’Oréal in the daytime and hacking 3D-printers in his living room at night. He then decided to study design at the Royal College of Art and in 2013 and he co-designed one of the first consumer delta 3D-printers. His passion for innovation led him to co-found two startups, Gravity Sketch (3D creation in VR) and Notpla (edible packaging).
Pierre has a Master degree from the RCA’s Innovation Design Engineering programme (MA & MSci) and INSA de Lyon (MEng). He has written articles for Wired Magazine and given a number of presentations about his projects at TEDx conferences in Athens and Warwick. Finally, Pierre is also a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering Enterprise Hub and a member of the Industrial Advisory Board of Imperial College London Dyson School of Design Engineering.
Driven by the urge to act on our plastic crisis, Pierre is now 100% focused on Notpla as Co-founder and Co-CEO, together with Rodrigo Garcia Gonzalez.
