alpine ski goggle
ADATIVE COLLABORATED WITH THE ALPINA SKI GOGGLE DESIGN TEAM TO DEVELOP AND DEFINE THE RECON-READY INTEGRATION PARAMETERS.
The Alpina Tech google was derived from the base curves and the ergonomic fit of an existing Alpina goggle model. The existing reference goggle had a fully framed cylindrical lens that sat in a continuous lens groove in the goggle frame. However, the scope of the redesign was to create a frameless lens design with exposed edges using a spherical lens.
The result was a new ski goggle design that was derived from an existing model, but that was also radically different.

Design concepts were explored with simple pencil sketches on CAD plotted underlays.
The final design concept was further evaluated using painted 3D printed SLA models.
