Immensa Technology Labs, the UAE-based 3D printing company, has announced a partnership to offer the first 3D-printed eyewear product line in the UAE.

After over a year of internal tests and prototypes, the frames are now market-ready and will represent the first regionally 3D-printed commercial product, the company said in a statement.

The partnership has been established with Dubai-based Monogram Eyewear, it added.

Bassel Kabak, founder and managing director at Monogram Eyewear, said: “We are delighted and proud to be introducing the first 3D-printed eyewear to Dubai, set to revolutionise the regional optical market.

"Conceived and created at Immensa, these frames are in line with the ‘Dubai 3D Printing Strategy’ and will offer a sustainable and innovative approach to the age-old industry.”

Customers purchasing these 3D-printed frames — ranging between AED1,300 and AED1,650 — can choose from 15 pre-set designs and a choice of four colours.

The frames will be printed using industry-established material and a unique blend of titanium alloy.

Fahmi Al Shawwa, CEO at Immensa Technology Labs, said: “Our scientists and engineers tirelessly worked with them to develop revolutionary, 3D-printed eyewear frames that we believe will take the market by storm.”
