MODO – primarily known as a full on titanium, acetate and TR90 eyewear manufacturer – is embarking on new, innovative paths. Founded in New York in 1990 and now extended across Milano and Stockholm, the company now combines its characteristic Paper-Thin titanium temples with a 3D-printed carbon-reinforced HIPAC front. The thin yet slightly structured front is highly resistant due to the use of carbon. The advantage of processing carbon materials with 3D printing technology is understandable: it is a fibre-plastic composite material in which several layers of carbon fibres are embedded in a plastic matrix. Thus, the stiffness and high weight-specific strength is highly appreciated not only in professional areas such as the aerospace industry, but also in model making and Formula 1.
