FutureFactories Studio founded in 2002, is the creative practice of Lionel Theodore Dean. The studio is focused exclusively on 3D printing and the creative use of digital design and manufacturing technologies.

Works range from limited edition gallery artwork to functional pieces. The significance of the work is illustrated by acquisitions by MoMA, The Museum for Modern Art in New York and DHUB, Design Museum Barcelona for their respective permanent collections.
