Inspirations: Designing Art-Wear
It’s also the result of years of expertise built up between Hoet and Materialise, who have together taken 3D-printed eyewear from the realm of the exclusive into its present reality of serial production.As a unique hybrid design featuring plastics and metals in a single frame, Cabrio SX takes 3D-printed eyewear to the next level in aesthetics and redefines what the technology can do for today’s eyewear market. It’s unmistakably Hoet, the expression of an entire innovation-oriented brand identity.
For Bieke Hoet, with her passion for innovation, the journey into 3D Printing has been exceptionally enriching.
“For me, design starts with nature; how you use a material and expand its potential in any direction with respect to its material properties. I work with 3D Printing, combining new technologies and new materials, because I believe it not only offers new possibilities in eyewear design but is a game changer that affects the complete business.”
