Blooming (Folding Eyewear) by Sonja Iglic
2017 - 2018, Golden A' Jewelry, Eyewear and Watch Design Award Winner
Inspiration comes from growth and metamorphosis of all beings. Blooming flowers are used as symbols of change and development and are presented as movable petals. I intended to create multi purpose items, that can adapt to specific needs of the wearer by personal changes throughout the day.
The main focus of this conceptual piece is in it's ability to be changed at any point without an extensive effort of the wearer. This function of multiple looks alongside the folding system is what makes these accessories stand out. Once folded, the eyewear becomes compact which makes it really easy to carry around.
Design Challenges
The biggest challenge was the ergonomic part of the eyewear's frames. It was very difficult to create the frames foldable and at the same time to achieve one continues flowing line that forms the final shape (both folded and opened).
Production Technology
The whole collection is made by hand out of 18k gold plated brass alongside the multiple laser cut plexiglass with flower prints.
