Berlin – Eyewear brand Mykita has slowed down the 3D printing process in a short film promoting its My Very Own (MVO) range.
Speedy production times are one of the main benefits of 3D printing, but German eyewear brand Mykita isn’t concerned with how fast something goes from concept to finished product.
In a short film, the making process is slowed to reveal microscopic details that evoke the creeping erosion of rock by the sea or the delicate formation of ice crystals.
The glasses are constructed layer by layer, block by block to the exact specifications of the wearer’s face using scanning technology from 3D modelling company Volumental.
