Niloca founder, Colin Redmond, says his Chop Chop collection pushes the boundaries of industrial design thinking by combining what is often called, in accounting terms ‘The Triple Bottom Line’.
“Chop Chop combines a whimsical style (social), optical design pragmatic details (financial) and environmental mindfulness (eco) into an acetate alloy frame,” he says.
Inspired by Redmond’s travels through South East Asia on an Australian Trade mission, the frames are formed from rods of acetate using a process that significantly reduces waste.
“The ends of the rods are fused together using a melding process specially developed to close the loop like a stroke of calligraphy. This process took forever to solve and I still feel the headache pain shallow on my scalp, but it was so worth it looking at the end result.”
