Hilgard Muller, the Industrial Design Manager at Giro, talks about their design process of creating a pair of world-class sunglasses.

Watch the workflow from sketch, to 3D CAD and rapid prototyping to production and notice how intimate the ID’s connection with the material and minute details that make a good product great. There’s no throwing it over the wall here, just handing off the final design to manufacturing with all the details specified. Now that’s what design is all about.
