Limited Edition in wood by W-Eye

19th November 2012 A wood brand I have been seeing regularly at trade fairs since it was created – I admire the lightness and robustness of the W-Eye frames and there are always some interesting organic or retro shapes. The label has recently released this special edition “Occhione” (model 505) inspired by the ’60s. The circular eye shape and stripy patterning make this very appealing as does the handcrafted necklace that accompanies it; this decorative piece is designed in collaboration with artist Brigitta Bertolini of the Laboratorio Orafo Artigiano Dada, Udine. To see more of Bertolini’s gold and silver work, visit the website: http://marioscrafts.com/it/a/dada.

The sunglasses are presented in a deep mahogany case, also made by artisans in the W-Eye workshops. To find out about this Italian label’s work with wood, visit www.w-eye.it  CN
