We have repeatedly presented eyeglasses made of different materials: wood, rubber, leather, … not to mention the customizable models or the collections with the most intriguing shapes. At Designersblock
, part of the London Design Festival 2013
, we saw POP:EYE
, the newborn project of the designer and architect Federico Scoponi, an experiment that is based on the creative recycling of the cardboard. A challenge completed with determination, whose result is a captivating line of glasses, whose frames are made with layers of pressed cardboard and covered by a layer of water-resistant paint, which gives a rubbery finish, without affecting the original color and texture. Screws are the only metal element. A lightweight and flexible eyeglass, that allows a high degree of customization in the working phase (any logo, sentence, pattern or color can be embossed on the cardboard structure) to suit the needs of each client. Seen, and touched, live they are simply amazing, extremely versatile and stylish, lightweight but strong, with a variety of patterns and shapes that are able to adapt to any personality.
