Conclude Eyeglasses

My goal for designing this pair of eyeglasses was to create something that you are happy to have be a part of you for the next two to three years. I realized that choosing a pair of glasses is a big decision, one that requires research and testing. It becomes a part of you and how people picture you.

I wanted to design a pair of eyeglasses that goes with everything, embraces the fact that you have glasses, and innovates on the classic forms and the hinge.

 I chose to design a rounded frame shape with a ridged bridge. The hinge is unique by its simple technology of just clipping the temples and frame together by their open hole details creating a system which allows the glasses to be properly positioned to fold and be worn.
