Today, Chantal is wearing the Silmo d’Or awarded model 609 Vortex, a 3D printed piece of art by Impressio. Its design was realized using mathematical algorithms, representing a Vortex type profile that wraps around the lens forming an 8 infinite, almost flowery. By its movement, this model represents, the complexity of the infinitely simple.
The face is made of Polyamide (3D printing) polished and tinted to give a smooth, close to leather look. It is assembled by hand with branches in beta matrix titanium. This marriage makes it possible to create very light voluminous pieces (20 gr, glasses (crystals) included).
With this design, Impressio pushes the technical limits and questions volumes through its collections. Curves and reliefs that reflect both naturalistic and art nouveau inspirations and modern architecture. Eyewear becomes a playground that combines new technologies and timeless know-how.
Impressio refuses all technical constraints. Advanced design and 3D technologies now allow this philosophy to take shape, while continuing the tradition of the most specialized eyewear.
