MONO is a whole new range of glasses that are printed in 3D according to your face.
If clothes are made in different sizes, why not glasses?
If you wear glasses, you probably know how frustrating it is to be in a glasses store, where after trying dozens of pairs that simply do not seem to be the right size for your face, your choice is finaly done by default, sometimes at the expense of comfort.
To remedy this problem, Edmond Wong, Architect based in Hong Kong, launched ITUM, a glasses brand that seeks to address this simple issue by printing frames according to your face. Because if clothes are made in different sizes, why not glasses?
What is your size of glasses?
ITUM created a sizing system using the three critical measurements that allow for comfort: the width of the frame, the depth of the nose pad and and the temples length. Each measurement, available in S, M or L, combines to form a three-digit code. This code is your ideal size of frame.
Seamless – Ultra Light – Interchangeable
Conventional glasses are built with several parts, which make them fragile. ITUM managed to reduce all these parts into one. Each frame pattern is printed in 3D in one piece: there is no assembly no screws or hinges. The weight itself has been minimized through the use of a material with a lower density than the conventional ones traditionally used for glasses frames. This particularity makes the glasses even more comfortable.
Five frame models are already available.
MONO mounts are for now proposed in four colors – black, white, red and blue.
MONO glasses are available for pre-order via their Indiegogo campaign.
