Digital fabrication processes like 3D printing enable the production of unique products in small quantities, jump-starting small businesses and new forms of craftsmanship. Adrian Gögl uses them to create bespoke eyewear frames and protective cases.
Adrian Gögl was born in 1981 and raised in Zurich. After working as an optician, he enrolled at the Academy of Art and Design FHNW in Basel to study Industrial Design and work as a photographer. In 2014, he completed his studies, earning a bachelor’s degree, and presented his concept OAK & DUST, which reflects an answer to the question of how 3D Printing can be effectively applied in the retail environment. Currently, he is working as a designer in R&D at Götti Eyewear in Switzerland and will soon start his own company.
