Susan Taing is the founder and CEO of bhold, a New York-based 3D printing and design studio specializing in smart, functional accessories that make life easier. A former Google employee, Taing has years of experience in tech, creative, and manufacturing. One day, she encountered some inefficiencies in the overseas manufacturing process and realized that 3D printing would allow for better and faster design.
Taing launched bhold in April 2013. Under her direction, the studio won an Editor’s Choice award at Maker Faire, was selected for the Product Design Showcase at 3D Printshow, and was invited to be the Shapeways Designer in Residence at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York City two times.
bhold’s line of 3D printed products currently include the bheard portable audio amplifier, bholdable dual wall espresso tumbler, bsteady phone car mount, bneat earbud organizer, and bstrong utility hook, among others. bhold is part of the NYDesigns incubator and a member of the American Design Club.
