During today’s TEFdoesRIO shoot, Chantal is having a slice of “Slider” by Monoqool Eyewear. These 3d printed glasses are called “Russian Roulette” and are ultra light and cool, pushing the boundaries of what is possible with 3D printing, made with elegant ultra-thin design lines and weighing only 4 grams.
The simplest ideas are often the hardest to get. The solution which makes you think: why didn’t I think about that? Such an idea is a result of eliminating all unnecessary elements. That’s what Monoqool strive for. Every day. Bringing the wearer ultimate comfort is top of their agenda. They make ultra thin frames. Lightweight. No screws. Easy to adjust. Happy customers.
