FLEXIBLE GLASS HINGES
I bend but don’t break
MAGIC LINE wanted a new flexible hinge to assemble on their glasses, something very high-tech and functional.
The wiper of a car windshield has a very technical look, is functional and does the same movements as a flexible hinge, it opens and closes in pop-out motion and bends externally.
It was enough to make it smaller, make few adjustments and the TERGI-FLEX was done.
To know more about this project and about flex hinges in general take a look at the video below.
