Pierre Paslier is a London-based Innovation Design Engineer who has spent his career exploring the intersection of design and technology. He started his career as a Packaging Engineer for L’Oréal, where he worked during the day and experimented with 3D-printing in his free time. This passion for innovation led him to study design at the Royal College of Art, where he co-designed one of the first consumer delta 3D-printers.

After completing his studies, Pierre co-founded two startups: Gravity Sketch, which creates 3D designs in virtual reality, and Notpla, which focuses on developing sustainable packaging. Currently, Pierre is the Co-CEO of Notpla, where he is dedicated to finding solutions to the global plastic crisis through his work on packaging made from seaweed. Notpla won Prince William’s £1,000,000 Earthshot Prize in 2022.

Pierre has a Masters degree from the RCA’s Innovation Design Engineering program and INSA de Lyon. He has written articles for Wired Magazine and given presentations at TEDx conferences in Athens and Warwick.
