We are Albert and David, founders of Binokers, and we invite you to join us making the design and sale of sunglasses accessible for everyone.
First of all, we want young and passionate creators to produce their own line of sunglasses with barely any investment nor effort. And secondly, we want everybody to have access to a larger variety of affordable and high quality sunglasses designs.
At Binokers we take the advantages of 3D printing technology so that any creator can produce and sell sunglasses in an easy and affordable way. We eliminate the main entry barriers such as production time, initial investment, and the need to have a distribution network.
Eliminate the need for molds for the plastic injection. These are very costly and require a large production volume (of identical products) to pay off the initial investment.
Differentiation and freedom of design. Every product can be different from those produced before and after because the designs are not limited by a fixed number of molds.
Reduce development and manufacturing times. Product development is much faster and there is no stock or a waste of material resources.
The differences between a traditional process to produce eyewear versus our method.
These are the steps that a new product will follow until it gets to the end customer:
We know that Binokers isn’t possible without the collaboration between many different kinds of people such as creators, designers, developers, manufacturers, customers, etc.
That is why we need your support through Kickstarter as well, to help us take the next steps in Binokers’ journey. We have prepared some very special rewards for you in return for your pledge: you can choose between the first ten Binokers models designed by young and passionate creative souls.
We hope that you like them!

Which ones do you prefer? Make them yours! And remember that Binokers packaging can be customized if desired.
With your support we can make Binokers accessible to everybody.
We want to create a comprehensive online platform that allows creators to upload their design, manage production, and distribute their sunglasses line. What’s more, we want this same platform to become the sales and distribution channel for everybody interested in our creators’ sunglasses.
Binokers is based in Barcelona and was founded in 2015. That same year we won the first prize in the 7th edition of the Yuzz entrepreneurship program at the University of Barcelona, sponsored by Santander Bank, which gave us the confidence to make our idea a reality. We are currently preparing our market launch for next month, September 2017, after the finalization of our Kickstarter campaign.
Albert is the know-how. His father is the owner of a Spanish eyewear company and this family example was a great motivation for Albert to want to make his own way in the business. In 2013, he graduated in Business and Administration from La Salle Bonanova, a renowned Barcelona university. Later he studied Direction of Human Resources in Organizations at the graduate level in the Barcelona School of Management. He currently works full-time on the development of Binokers.
David is the technology. His vocation resulted in him studying Engineering at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, where he obtained a double degree in Superior Industrial Engineering from the UPC and Aerospace Engineering from SUPAERO-ISAE in Toulouse. He started his professional career in 2013 in the aeronautics field, where he currently works on the development of 3D printing applications for the world of aviation.
Risks and challenges
We expect to deliver your Binokers and rewards according to our timeline. However, even the most well planned manufacturing process can meet unpredictable hiccups.
If your reward requires customization, once the campaign is finished we will send you an email to choose your model and attributesLearn about accountability on Kickstarter
