22 March 2019. Kilian Wagner founded VIU in 2013 and set himself the task of revolutionising the glasses market. His VIU glasses are designed in Switzerland and then handmade in an Italian family company in the Dolomites. VIU has since established itself as a pioneer in the field of eyewear. In the 3D printing process, the company also produced the "Archetypes Collection" from polyamide dust. VIU serves over 100,000 clients in Germany, Austria and Switzerland with more than 300 employees. A market presence in Denmark, Sweden and England is planned for 2019.
