Phillip Starck Eyeglasses Collection, by Alain Mikli
Biovision: Technology, Creativity, Humanity
Because sight is our most important sense, Philippe Starck and Alain Mikli have invented the glasses of the future. Their combined creativity and technical expertise have given birth to a new concept in optics: Biovision. Glasses frames inspired by the human being and dedicated to his well-being.
Know as The Starck Eyes Collection, today’s successor to the conventional screw-hinge is a biomechanical articulation designed like a human micro-clavicle. Inspired by the arm’s natural intelligence, it shares the same multi-directional freedom of movement. As a result, the absence of screws in the bio-hinge assures constant pressure on the temples and provides better comfort.
Philippe Starck: Towards the Non-Object
Convinced that things have a soul of their own, he has focused on defining a new relationship between man and matter. As the object surrenders its material substance, Philippe Starck restores its original purpose: human fulfillment. He has expressed his contemporary “bio-design” vision in a wide variety of industrial and architectural objects.
We can order any frame model available in the U.S. Check their website to see the entire collection: http://www.mikli.com/desktop.php
