Way back in 1972 a Japanese company called EyeVan introduced the concept of “glasses to wear” and was global by 1985. Like many companies, a new design team took over EYEVAN, renamed it to EYEVAN7285 and it has become hot again.
They use items such as old glasses, telescopes, hand mirrors, other old tools collected by the original design team, artifacts such as buildings the designers themselves saw, natural and natural things and incorporate them into the design of the eyewear. As an example a
temple is made from a French made fork manufactured in the 1940’s, metal frames are inspired by the 1970s and even old Japanese temples.
Made in Sabae City, Japan, an area reknown for Japanese eyewear craftsman, the frames are produced by a combination of machine and by hand. Some up to 400 steps to make. You can see the detailing, it is exquisitite.
Many of the eyeglasses that make up a combination of traditional manufacturing method and new recipe are seemingly simple and casual design, but details are very skillful, and even in Sabae special handmade by limited artisans with high technology Account for the majority. Eyeglasses that carefully take time taking care of about 400 steps are more modern craft items than industrial products. Is it?
