Naomi Kaempfer is the creative director of art, fashion and design and is responsible for the build up of the fashion, design, and art collaborations at Stratasys. Kaempfer explores the possibilities of crossing borders in the creative disciplines with 3D printing, and, with its advanced technologies, collaborates with designers and artists to stretch the creative envelope. Her latest focus with the Stratasys design team is on the fashion application of Polyjet 3D Printer directly on textile. Kaempfer forms relationships and collaborations with museums, art and design institutions, the creative sector, and art collectors. Throughout the years, Kaempfer set up numerous collections in collaboration with top artists and designers that have been presented at leading museums such as the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Victoria and Albert Museum, London; Centre Pompidou, Paris; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Smithsonian National Museum, Washington, D.C.; Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, New York; and many more.

Kaempfer studied law and philosophy and achieved a bachelor in product engineering and a master of science in design management.
