Research and innovative techniques since 1989Our strength lies in our passion for innovation in design, techniques and materials. Essential to our design process is extensive research, thorough knowledge of materials and the talent to adapt old techniques into new ones.
Patrick Hoet was one of the first eyewear designers who used advance laser techniques to cut components for eyewear from steel plates. We are also the first company to market 3D-laser printed glasses in titanium. Various innovative techniques and new composite materials were patented and are used routinely in the designs for Theo and for other customers, as well as in our own collections Hoet Couture, Costume and Cabrio.
Hoet Design Studio possesses the technical expertise and has a specialised team that uses the most advanced techniques to realise its designs. Digital designs are conceptualised totally in 3-D so that the components and even complete frames of the glasses are produced by means of the latest 3-D laser printed techniques.
