Swiss design by itself its a standard for quality and impeccable design. And when you mix that with a 3d printer, you have Viu. Glasses are fragile and really tiny structures so even the smallest detail has to be on point to have a durable product. And Viu achieves that by printing their glasses with a 3d printer. The future is here. But you can also choose between the classic handcrafted models made of titanium, steel or cotton acetate.
