Shepherd’s Bush Glasses. Ron Arad.

These cool designer glasses won the Silver Newcomer of the Year Award in 2012 by Hall of Frames. Designed by Ron Arad, these glasses for PQ Eyewear adjust to fit the wearer’s head without a single screw or hinge. They were inspired by animal skeletons, as most good industrial design seems to be these days. The Shepherd’s Bush A-Frame glasses are made from a single wire that loops and doubles back to form the frame. The triangular shape can be raised or lowered to adjust the width between the lenses. When the glasses come off, the arms bend naturally inwards. Noses and heads come in all shapes and sizes, explain the designers, so glasses should be easily adjustable. “There are very few new ideas in the world of glasses,” Arad writes on his website. “Now everything is retro, or sometimes even a retro of retro. I felt there was something missing.”
