Wood + Glitter = Glam

Woodone creates handmade glasses out of a piece of plywood, all made in South Tyrol. These two new designs caught my attention, very delicate shape and amazing glitter surface. Glam glasses 2.0!

I’ve heard several opticians being very conservative when it comes to wooden frames. A typical argument against wooden frames is that you can’t adjust them, Woodone however, has done a great job showing how to bend a Woodone-wooden frame in this video:

Arnold Kis has created his dream collection: ROZI

Arnold Kis has always been a big fan of sunglasses and followed all the latest trends. But somehow, he always found something he would ave done different. After 2 years of planning and development he has now finally launched his dream collection of sunglasses: ROZI.

ROZI-Handcrafted-Wooden-Sunglasses-2

The frame is made of 8 layers of flat sliced hard maple, the coating, depending on the
type, is made of 1 layer of quarter sliced walnut or ebony. The sheets of veneer are
glued together by ourselves, and are refined with several stages of hand-grinding. Fitting is achieved by bending, which is followed by a careful shaping. All sunglasses uses lenses from HOYA. The low weight, 17-19 grams, and absence of nose pads makes these wooden frames very comfort. The special wooden hinges are made of the world’s hardest wood, ebony, in 3 and 5 layers.
