One of the concepts we most often repeat in the industry is that 3D printing lets designers go from idea to finished products in a few, streamlined steps. What this means is that sites like Adobe’s Behance network, with which designers showcase their work, becomes just the first step in launching a new commercial venture.
“Removing the barriers between talent and opportunities”, as Behance describes itself, is, in the end, exactly the stated reason why Behance was created in the first place. And the latest talent to turn a Behance concept into a real opportunity is Nasim Sehat, an Iranian designer living in Shanghai, with her own eyewear line Biz Eyes.
Nasim, who studied at Barcelona’s famous Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC), created a concept for a basic, 3D printed frame with custom detachable rings that seek to offer “a fun and unique way to make a bold statement with everyday eye-wear.” Using an innovative interlocking joint design, the project also wants to enable users to create their own custom rings simply by submitting the 3D models they have designed.
