Inspiration can come from the smallest of places. Teeny tiny. Minuscule, even. In the case of our brand new plotic sunglass ‘I see exoskeleton’, inspiration came at the molecular level. Inspired by the molecular structure of the raw material our designers zoomed and magnified and magnified and zoomed, going ever deeper until eventually the inside became the outside: an “outside skeleton”.
Just like a skeleton, ‘I see exoskeleton’ has its own natural joints. Because we can 3D print the front, we can now print a hinge joint that doesn’t need separate brackets or clips (or screws!). Now, the temple connects directly and organically to the front, forming a brand new screwless hinge that is stronger and smoother than any other.
The result? An instant classic: a sunglass that strikes the perfect balance between modern edge and day-to-day wearability. ‘I see exoskeleton’ is for forward-thinkers, free-thinkers and people who do not shy away from attention. It is for confident risk-takers who appreciate the classics but who always look to the future.
