Drip was founded in essence to be collaboration between community resources and design. Drip serves the local SF design community as an incubator for new ideas and solutions to design challenges. We aim to train and create jobs both locally and throughout the U.S. and to help promote local businesses, machine fabricators and suppliers.
We are actively seeking energetic individuals with diverse areas of interest to join our collaborative dialogue. Contact us with your info.
EJ Tanu, Drip Module Founder
A thoughtful, passionate designer, EJ’s design aesthetic is informed by a robust and diverse career in architecture. With over 15 years working for large corporate architectural firms like Gensler – Studio 585, EJ has worked independently and in collaboration to develop prototypes for both interior and architecture-related projects. He is responsible for a multitude of successful branding design initiatives and is director of his own design firm, EJ Tanu Design.
EJ’s design process relies heavily on rapid prototyping and, as a result, he has become proficient in the language of the technical design process. He is a hands-on designer who is involved in the fabrication and assembly of his designs, utilizing 3D printer and CNC tools, and techniques such as laser cutting, injection molding, vacuum forming and manual sculpting.
An avid scuba diver, EJ makes frequent stops to Hawaii to take in design of a more natural origin. He has travelled extensively throughout Asia, but with Lennon, his beloved poodle-mix rescue pup waiting patiently back home, he’s never gone for too long.
