  • Piet Hein Eek

    For his first foray into eyewear, Eindhoven designer Piet Hein Eek has created a line of spectacles and sunglasses with frames made from two strips of titanium.

    The idea was to use only two lines for the top and bottom, with the temples in between, each thin strip of lightweight titanium curves around the lenses, pinching together at the bridge and clasping the arms in between at the hinges. The arms are twisted from horizontal at the joint to vertical so they sit comfortably over the ears.

    There are models available, each in 7 colours with sunglass options.

    On the Aviator model, the sections of frame above the lenses are extended out above the to create a more interesting profile.

    The smaller Panto design has more elliptical lenses and arms that become thinner towards the ends.

    There are also new rectangular models in 2 sizes.
