Walk into Scott Summit’s downtown San Francisco office and the first thing to hit you are legs. (Literally, if you’re not careful.)

Summit, the co-founder of Bespoke Innovations, has set up a display area to show off his custom body parts. Artfully lit white shelves are lined with feet, shins, and entire legs made out of sturdy, yet flexible plastic. Summit builds these products for amputees and gives them a design flourish well beyond the hodgepodge machinery that goes into traditional prosthetics.
