Fuseproject: See Better To Learn Better

'See Better To Learn Better' by design studio Fuseproject is their latest effort in designing for humanity. it is a free eyeglass program in partnership with the Mexican government. The reality in mexico is that 11% of kids have difficulty learning due to issues of poor vision. The problem is further compounded by the stigma of glass as a sign of handicap.

To address both issues, the design of the frames provide kids with numerous colors and shape configurations. With 5 different frame options in 7 different colors, the program hopes to create an element of fun and introduce the idea of glasses in a much lighter and approachable manner.

The frames are made from an advanced plastic, Grilamid, that is almost unbreakable, and the two-part design allows for lenses to be easily inserted in the field when new prescriptions are filled.

Cutler and Gross 0913

For 40 years now, Graham Cutler and Tony Gross have been pushing sagacious eyewear from their home in Knightsbridge, London.  For all intents and purposes, Cutler and Gross have no logo.  Their various styles are simply called by a code, not by any fanciful names.

They put their classic designs first and allow them to speak for themselves.  A certain air of glamour permeates everything they create, and the 0913 certainly typifies that.  An all-black, acetate, aviator-style frame and gradiant lens strike a perfect combination of classic style and sophisticated modern panache. 

Available here.
