Providing great fitting, high-quality eyewear for people with low and wide nose bridges.
Eyewear products are not designed to fit people with low and wide nose bridges.
Instead, most off-the-shelf or ready-toorder products are designed to fit high and narrow nasal bridges (Caucasian nasal features). Consequently, people with low and wide bridges (mostly people of African descent”) have little option but to wear badly fitting sunglasses, get custom-made frames at a huge cost or opt-out of wearing sunglasses altogether.
An eyewear brand focused on designing and producing glasses to fit most of Black People’s nose profiles. Incorporating significant changes to frame design in combination with great aesthetics and material finish. Our products are 3D-printed in nylon and premium cellulose acetate. The Project incorporates algorithmic design in combination with additive manufacturing to speed up design iterations and product development. Our product development framework easily and quickly responds to changes in consumer choices.
