HOYA launches UNITi by Yuniku a new eyewear collection with titanium temples…
HOYA Vision Care Company, a key player in the global market for ophthalmic lenses, proudly announces the new UNITi by Yuniku eyewear collection release, the next big revolution of vision-centric, 3D tailored eyewear that is designed entirely around the optimal vision of the wearer.
Timeless design with a personality that is both strong and elegant. A unique collection, designed by Bieke Hoet, that unites 3D tailored eyewear with titanium temples.
Function, look and feel in perfect harmony
Yuniku is the world’s first vision-centric 3D-tailored eyewear developed by Materialise and HOYA Vision Care Company that is designed entirely around your style and offers ultimate vision and wearer comfort: YUNIKU is the only made-to-order eyewear that puts your vision first and optimizes your visual performance. The advanced Yuniku scanner builds your eyewear based on your visual and ergonomic needs and lets you see how you will look like when wearing them.
The use of a new metal material is a first in the Yuniku history. By pushing materials and pioneering technologies to their edge of performance, the combination of polyamide and titanium results in minimal weight and sensational twelve new designs to make the Yuniku portfolio complete.
Aubergine, Burgundy, Navy Blue, Vintage Leather, Tungsten and Charcoal. The colours of the collection live in perfect harmony with the twelve new design directions that UNITi by Yuniku dictates this spring. The collection features from classic shapes to extravagant styles to meet the personality of the wearer.
Launched to wide acclaim in 2016, Yuniku represents a breakthrough in the optical industry because it transforms the way lenses are prescribed. Traditionally, the selected frame and its position of wear were a given. The lens design could only be optimised and customised within the limitations these posed, with potentially adverse effects on vision – a frame-centric approach.
Yuniku, by contrast, uses a vision-centric approach. It takes into account the customer’s facial features and visual requirements, and calculates the ideal position of wear for optimal visual performance.
The selected frame is then 3D printed based on these individual parameters. This approach enables eyewear that is perfectly tailored to the visual and aesthetic needs of the customer, without compromising on style or fit.
Yu-ni-ku is Japanese for ‘unique’. It is actually the phonetic, Western spelling of the Japanese word for unique. It stands for dynamic, intuitive and innovative; for one of a kind. An innovative power that knows how to meet the needs of its time, allowing it to capture the collective unconsciousness.
