Making Optimised Resistant and durable mArble

Project description

Revolutionary marble eyewear thanks to state-of-the-art cutting technology

Creating glasses for fashion purposes is the latest trend in the eyewear industry. Italian company BBG has introduced a first-of-its-kind eyewear range that features customised glasses made of marble. It has developed technology that shapes this fragile natural stone into small sizes and smooth curves through a precision method. The marble is blended with a carbon fibre skeleton by using a specially designed resin to increase robustness and resistance. The EU-funded MORA project aims to improve the glasses’ production and assembly cycle, and modify raw and production materials. This will boost production volumes while reducing costs, weight and production time. The project will also assess the market and define a pricing strategy.
