Yuniku is the japanese word for “Unique”. It carries the meaning of dynamism, intimism.
It is the world’s first vision-centric 3D eyewear made just for you. Combining 3D scanner technology with advanced algorithms, Yuniku eyewear is designed entirely around your face and your vision.
Moving the industry from frame-centric to vision-centric.
Since the first spectacles over 700 years ago there has been a problem. Regular spectacles can be customized only to a certain degree. When lenses and frames are designed separately, there are limited options regarding which frame will fit which lens. Leaving visual precision to depend on the opticians' supply
Using revolutionary 3D technology, Yuniku is designed entirely around your visual needs. Once the lenses have been optimally positioned in relation to your eyes, the frame is then built around them using 3D printing. By integrating custom-fit lenses and frames, you can experience the ultimate in optical precision – without compromising on style or fit.
How 3D printed eyewear works
It all begins by assessing your visual needs and facial features. The optician will scan your face, allowing advanced software to calculate the ideal position of the lenses in relation to your eyes. This not only ensures the best frame fit for exceptional comfort but also the best style for your face.
The next step is for you to choose a model from the existing collection. By providing information about your lifestyle, whether your usual schedule involves working in front of a computer screen or training as a professional athlete, the lenses and frame will be tailored to your personal needs.
Once you see yourself on the screen wearing the custom-designed model, the spectacles are ready to be 3D printed. The lenses are precision cut and the frame is directly printed around them. The result is an incredible visual experience and a personalized fit.
The benefits of 3D-printing technology
Designing glasses based on your distinct facial features opens the door to an entirely new optical experience. The frame is designed to accurately fit your face, sitting comfortably on your nose and positioned within an optimal distance from your cheeks and eyelashes. Resulting in no more sliding, pinching or rubbing.
Yuniku frames are made of polyamide 12, a material that has the ideal properties for producing premium spectacles. It's stronger than acetate, lighter than titanium and more flexible than TR90, a material commonly used in other frames.
Laser sintering technology makes it possible to reduce waste during the manufacturing process. Because 3D printers only use the amount of material required for frame production, resources are utilized most efficiently. Since every Yuniku product is made to measure, there is no risk of overproduction.
