Our GRID Capsule Collection for HARBOUR has been honoured with a “German Design Award-Winner 2020” in the category “Excellent Product Design - Lifestyle and Fashion”.
Together with HARBOUR, a manufacturer of eyeglasses, Hadi Teherani is now literally designing from face to face. The laser sintering process in 3D printing is one of the new drafting and production techniques. But how does the archetypical repertoire of shapes for eyewear live on? How can it be transformed into a present-day fit and evolve further in the future? How much material is needed to ensure they are stable and conform to each and every requirement? The Grid Capsule Collection from HARBOUR offers a convincing answer.
JURY ASSESSMENT. These lightweight, futuristic and striking eyeglasses manufactured using 3D printing appear to not only open up a new, economical production option due to their honeycomb structure: the line equally offers numerous shapes, colours and sizes to suit every taste and need. The obviously functional grid-like form also acts as a subtle distinguishing feature for those viewing the frame.
