Eyetech AG | Götti Switzerland - KING in STONE
Mod. KING is an additively manufactured and panto-shaped prescription frame with a stainless steel nose bridge and temples.
This model is produced entirely in our own manufactory here in Switzerland. By using additive manufacturing methods (3D printing) we can actually produce those frames on demand, this is A) extremely resourceefficient and B) we don't need to have those glasses in stock. That way only what really is ordered gets produced and will still only take 2-3 weeks.
3D printing isn't entirely waste free, even if other brands tell different stories. Regardless of what basic material is used in 3D printing, it does create a substantial amount of residual powder that collects near the melting points and can afterwards no longer be used. But this has led us to a cool cooperation with an artist (Fabio Hendry - www.hotwireextensions.com) who now turns our residual powder into pieces of art.
