Bringing design DNA to life in 3D Printing
For his latest collection, Hofmann has created a series of exquisitely stylish eyewear pieces with a classic vintage look and they’re completely 3D-printed. Hofmann’s in-depth understanding of 3D Printing was integral to the design process, notes Alireza Parandian, Head of Global Business Strategy for AM Wearables at Materialise.
“With his background not only in design but also in engineering, Fabián brings a unique perspective to the development cycle. He was well-versed with what the technology could offer, and used this knowledge consciously to design in a way that would make the most of the technology. I believe that this expertise is at the foundation of his design style: the unique curves and angles that COSMOS uses would not be possible without an understanding of what the technology does best.”

"Now that 3D Printing has arrived in a broader market, and printed consumer goods are finding an ever-growing audience, I strongly believe that we should not stop at this point for serial production alone, but push the boundaries even harder, striving to reach a new advanced level of sophistication and product quality.”
