Industrial & Graphic Design + Photography & Film
sunglasses were designed in Delft in the Netherlands. The design draws on the confluence of tradition and modernity that the city of Delft - and the Netherlands - represents. The glasses were created in CAD software using 3D scans of heads to create a comfortable and ergonomic design.
prototypes were manufactured using a Formlabs SLA printer. Once cured in a chemical solution, printed prototypes require minimal finishing.
The et cetera project explores additive manufacturing and algorithmic customisation in sunglasses design. The technology to establish decentralised design and manufacturing frameworks is available and ready for us to use.
