“The Cabrio collection differentiates itself by the use of new materials and techniques. This creates endless freedom for design and style.”
Bieke Hoet, Hoet Design Studio
After being 3D-printed in a certified additive manufacturing environment — with strictly monitored standards for the eyewear industry’s exacting requirements — the Cabrio frames are given the Materialise Luxura treatment. Luxura, a new finishing degree, was launched earlier this year with the intention of catering solely to the 3D-printed wearables market.
At Materialise, the Luxura finish — as well as the Cabrio collection itself — is one of the success stories behind a working process that we call co-creation; a process that is at the core of the Materialise philosophy.
“Co-creation is a crucial journey that starts with designers and engineers bringing their respective competencies to the table, and along the way discover products that would have been unthinkable with the skillsets of any one group alone.”
Alireza Parandian, Head of Global Business Strategy for Wearables
