ID4A is a Design Technology company and R&D Lab based in San Francisco. The company is led by founders and creative entrepreneurs Rania Hoteit and Malek Idriss. Since our founding, we have been thinking about a world defined by Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing), Industrial Robots, Machine Vision Technologies and Large-Scale Networks to accelerate design-to-manufacturing workflows. What we do at ID4A is ask, "How can we reinvent design processes given that reality?"
The company focuses its creative energies on solving problems located at the intersection where industry and design meet with technology on the base of developing and producing novel web-based applications. We believe that a deep understanding of the creative consumer needs and design-to-production workflows is essential to developing tools and applications that designers and businesses can embrace and value. In that sense, we are “design workflows-focused” inventors in a world filled with new technologies.
We founded ID4A as a privately held R&D company in Los Angeles in 2011. We initiated a series R&D projects to develop novel technologies that can support the iterative design prototyping cycle. The company has been focused on creating innovative applications that work with wide variety of design-to-manufacturing processes which is the drive behind our developments. In 2014, we based ID4A Headquarters and Research Lab in San Francisco to continue our developments for further applications.
