Ryan Pennings is an Industrial Designer from Melbourne, Australia; with an avid interest in robotic fabrication and algorithmic design. His curiosity in robotic fabrication and it’s application to product design is a key focus of his work. Ryan has worked on a number of professional projects, including robotic fabrication for RMIT University alongside academic research into algorithmic design, robotic fabrication and 3D printing. 

Ryan graduated from RMIT University in 2015 with a Bachelor of Industrial Design(Honours)(first class honours); his experience there and previous work provides him with knowledge and skills in a wide range of areas including 3D printing, digital/advanced manufacturing, robotic fabrication, and product, furniture, and lighting design.

Ryan’s design practice looks to combine algorithmic design with conventional product design. Ryan has created products that range from algorithmically driven ceramics to robotically 3D printed furniture, and showcase the possibilities that robotic fabrication affords designers.
