Introducing the pq Springs collection. This is an eyewear line that comprises the very first pairs of glasses that have been manufactured by means of 3D printing technology. Composed of nylon powder to take durable polyamide forms, the accessories are able to delight with intriguing physical features.

Quite significantly, each of the frames has been built by SLS so that it's monolithic. Indeed, every one consists of a single component, thus not requiring fussy hardware and hinges. Scoring in the material facilitates flexibility so that the pq Springs collection pieces can fold inwards for easy storage.

Ron Arad designed several styles of the sunglasses and spectacles that include a choice of various colors and sculptural forms that take inspiration from London Underground stations.
