We believe that your eyewear should truly be YOURS. Frame is a system that empowers the user to actively choose and design his own modular eyewear.


Frame is based on a parametric code designed with Grasshopper. This means you can edit every feature of your model as you like.

3D print

Download the project files and 3D print them at home or wherever you prefer. You can go to a Fab Lab or a hub, or use an online service.


Once you have your pieces, it's easy to put the lenses inside and assemble them. Visit our "How to use" page for further explanation.

Use this editor to create your own Frame!

You can find detailed instructions on how to set up your model here.
