Plotic is 3D printed eyewear made by Selective Laser Sintering, and is available in eight new colours
They’ve utilised steel. They’ve utilised acetate. Now the next frontier. ic! berlin has launched plotic – 3D printed eyewear by Selective Laser Sintering.
plotic makes the impossible possible and paves the way for new designs and shapes which until now have been unthinkable using traditional manufacturing techniques. After several years of research and development, ic! berlin will launch plotic and plotic-hybrid eyewear for Opti 2015.
It’s a process that needs to be seen to be believed. Layer by tiny layer a frame grows as finely tuned lasers fuse together powder particles to create eyewear that is lighter, stronger, more flexible and more environmentally friendly than traditional materials. plotic allows total freedom in design and texture like never before.
For Opti 2015, ic! berlin launches plotic in eight rich new colours, two plotic-metal hybrids with a revolutionary new half ring construction, and two plotic sunglasses with an innovative new nose pad solution that is only possible with this technology.
