20 EIGHT DESIGN RELEASES AWARD WINNING CONCRETE SUNGLASSES FOR COMMERCIAL RETAIL


In August 2017, architect Handré de la Rey released his latest concept design for 20 EIGHT, The CS Project.

This project is 20 EIGHT's first commercially available pair of concrete sunglasses, and the production run on the current design is limited to the 1000 units. Each handcrafted and individually numbered. Each pair can be customized to reflect the wearers' individual needs, be it prescription lenses, frame colour and frame material.

Japanese architect, Tadao Ando, with his use of bold geometry, clean proportions and concrete was the inspiration for this design.

The Form 2 was used to prototype and test this design. The prototypes were printed using Formlabs' Tough Resin. Handré and the 20 EIGHT team are very talented and innovative and we look forward to see what their next step will be!
