Edoardo Trombini, 26 years old, is a Product Designer at Bertone Design and New Crazy Colors. Graduated in Product Design at IED University of Milan, he has a strong passion for design and planning, driven by the desire to know the past, reinterpret it and project it into the future. His initial love for "do-it-yourself" turned into the desire to create objects from design to realization. For Edoardo, there is nothing more exciting than seeing your product in its evolution, from the first sketches to its evolvement in the tiniest details. Edoardo uses 3D printing actively since 2018, which allows him, even in the design phase, to think and then create increasingly complex products from the beginning. Being responsible for prototyping and 3d printing of the group, Trombini retains that the 3D printers of Formlabs have better-printed products for prototyping and now real production.
