20 years of dreams realised

This year, Pilotfish is celebrating 20 years of tangible dreams with a walk down memory lane. In the last 20 years, we have supported more than 100 customers in designing more than 1,000 projects and producing more than 10 million products worldwide. Starting out as a two-person design studio, we successfully migrated our core activity from styling consumer electronics to materialising user experiences. 

“We founded Pilotfish in 2000 as two friends with a mission to create and deliver personalised products to your doorstep. We believed that emerging prototyping and 3D-printing technologies would enable us to design and manufacture unique and meaningful products at affordable prices. Our big idea was to shorten the product design, development and manufacturing times to match that of an eight-hour flight between Paris and New York. This vision kickstarted our journey – and part of yours.

We have supported more than 100 customers in designing more than 1,000 projects and producing more than 10 million products worldwide in the last 20 years. Starting out as a two-person design studio, we successfully migrated our core activity from styling consumer electronics to materialising user experiences. Our mission then and today is to humanise technology by putting the user in the centre of our design process. Our initial vision of making dreams tangible still stands proudly today.

This section of our website reflects on our first 20 years in business and throughout the pages you will find challenging projects alongside inspiring images. It is dedicated to all the people who have been part of Pilotfish in the last 20 years: our employees, our customers, our partners and our suppliers.

Thank you for playing a role in writing our history and creating an unlimited future,”
