Bionic - Gotti Switzerland

The idea is simple: a sustainable eyewear collection based on reduction and simplification. This extends from the material, construction, production location and packaging through to the well-thought-out concept, which can be customised to the desired size. All these factors serve the same aim, enabling sustainable and resource-saving glasses in keeping with the ethos of Gotti Switzerland.

The glasses are printed in 3D from a single material based on the seeds of the castor bean plant, a sustainable resource. This bio-based polyamide offers greater flexibility compared to other 3D-printed frames, thereby creating scope for new constructions. A new hinge, inspired by human ball-and-socket joints, has been developed and is the reason behind the new collection's name: BIONIC The eyewear has been systematically pared down to the front piece and a pair of temples, with no additional screws or other aids used for the hinge. The entire pair of glasses is made from just one basic material. This streamlining down to a single material enables optimised eyewear manufacturing with short transport distances, less energy consumption, and straightforward recycling. The collection features just four shapes and the four earthy tones of ash, blush, sand, and teal – all of which are classic colours that remain stylish in the long term and are not influenced by short-lived trends. All elements of the glasses can easily be customised in terms of size, with the lens size, bridge width, temple length, and optional nose pads all enabling a personalised fit.

The glasses are manufactured in a factory in Switzerland. Also Swiss-made and developed by Gotti is the simple kraft paper packaging, as well as the innovative glasses case. The eco-friendly material can be folded into two different case types: not just 100% made in Switzerland, but also an essential eyewear accessory.
