The French designer is releasing a new experimental 3D SLS printed collection incorporating an innovative material combination of nylon, stainless steel and acetate
A taste of the future characterised by rule-breaking shapes dominates the new 3D printed glasses series from Jean-François Rey. The frames use combinations of nylon, stainless steel and acetate and have airy volumes, open work structures, and quite unusual shapes and dimensions.
Produced in a range of very different looks from minimal to exotic, the collection is created using 3D SLS (selective laser sintering) technology, which offers very wide scope for exploring an unexpected world of shape. Above: model wears a dramatic showpiece in this collection – the JF2947, with a 3D front that has multiple layers
The JF 2945 model takes the classic round eye shape, and adds a further rim to either side, a construction that is both surprising and eye-catching, while the clean simplicity of the JF2944 (above) takes on its slightly more outgoing personality with the addition of a twisted 3D printed surface following the eye rims.
