The Danish company FLEYE wins the Good Design Award 2014, the most prestigious award for design in Japan.
It is the design details of the handmade model 4513 Luan that caught the attention of Japanese jury. The design of the patterns, the colour of the titanium, the shape of the nose pads, all elements of the glasses were designed to accommodate their functional role.
Carbon fiber is used in motorcycles, aircraft, yachts, and glasses. It is a light and strong material but cannot easily be adjusted. To overcome this weakness and to ensure a perfect fit, FLEYE designed a thin wire of flexible Japanese beta- titanium that loops across the nose bridge. The wire keeps the pads in place and can be adjusted.
