Vinylize Ashby

Glasses

Manufacturer

In-house design

Red Dot
Vinylize Ashby are glasses made of old vinyl records. A special production process makes it possible to fuse vinyl and cellulose acetate. As these two synthetic materials age and shrink at different rates, the frame changes over time and becomes rather concave in shape, making them even more comfortable to wear. The glasses are predominantly black in colour with a textured surface that shows noticeable grooves and lines. The temples, made of palladium plated matt metal, are easy to adjust.

Statement by the jury

»A clever design that bears witness to environmental awareness is at the origin of the Vinylize Ashby glasses. Their shape is emotionally appealing. «
