In 2017, adidas released their first sneaker with a 3D printed midsole. Today, the sportswear brand is again harnessing the innovation of 3D printing technology by launching an all new eyeglass frame designed with the latest generation of 3D printers.
The 3D CMPT, as the framework is called, is carried out in collaboration with Marcolin Group (whose brand portfolio includes Tom Ford, Guess, Moncler, Timberland and countless others), benefiting from a flexible nylon structure that has been treated with a special coating to give it a rubberized effect over the entire surface. Weighing in at just 20 grams, making it the lightest on the market, the one-piece frame immediately catches the eye with its textured spiral construction. Non-slip contact points on the nose pads and the tips are implemented not only to ensure a comfortable fit, but also to improve stability, regardless of movement. The design is completed with an integrated spherical mirror lens screen made from ultra-light polycarbonate.
“In sport, and as in everyday life, the dynamic soul of the individual requires attention to detail. This attention and care has been translated into new shapes, weights and volumes for sunglasses designed for play and recreation, ”adidas said in a statement. Release.
Created for professional athletes, but also designed for the casual athlete, the 3D CMPT sunglasses will initially be available in matte black with brown and mirrored silver lenses exclusively at adidas.com during Creative Club Week for Club members from August 23. Such an innovation comes at a price, however, as the glasses will cost $ 415.
