“Here revealed names and faces of the four designers who will design the glasses and sunglasses which will be 3D printed at the DWS booth during Maker Fair Rome from 14th to 16th October for the DWS’ event “Fabbrica 4.0: business your idea”. Four young italian designers who have accepted the challenge to examine the unlimited possibilities of the stereolithography: from a liquid material, photosensitive, to a finished and saleable product, made with the latest productive technology: the 3D printing.

Alice Barki is very young, she is only 28 years old but has a remarkable resume: graduated cum laude and II level bachelor in industrial design, obtained with the highest mark. She boasts prestigious professional collaborations on architecture and fashion and, from time to time, she takes part in design contest which are, generally, won by her. Her biggest inclination is the industrial design which she enriches with her artistic talent.

Enea Vitali comes from a family of opticians and is very easily been chosen by DWS for his experience: class 1983, optometrist optician with only one passion: the CAD design for drawing his own glasses. He has already founded his own brand, the Farmakoff, to produce them, clearly in stereolithography, and to sale them in his own shops.

A bachelor in design engineering and a role of professor at Poli.Design and at the Nuova Accademia delle Belle Arti, Fabio Caresi does not need an introduction. Expert of tridimensional modelling, he collaborates with different Italian brands which are leaders on interior design and on fashion industry. He is able to interprets the market needs, bestowing to his design a strong personality but elegant.

The FabLab Milano has been created by him, Salvatore Saldano, a mind that is a mix of creativity and pragmatism which encourages him to produce any common object with the 3D printing. Graduated at the Accademia delle Belle Arti of Brera, he has been working as industrial designer, but he prefers to be named a maker.

The production of the glasses in Maker Faire Special Edition, designed by these four talents will be realized with the printer that all the makers are dreaming of: XFAB of DWSLAB. It has a big variety of materials that can produce almost everything. XFAB is the printer that can transform the makers’ typical DIY philosophy in a new model of business.

Come to try the glasses on and to meet the four Designers at Maker Faire Rome, the biggest European exhibition: we wait you in Fiera di Roma from 14th to 16th of October!”
