Urband Origami / Eyewear

Discipline: Material

Urband Origami eyewear is made from one piece of 0.4 mm sheet metal with 18 bending into a frame front with multi-function mechanism. It creates the look of a thick block metal frame front with a built-in S-clip mechanism. The frame front and S-clip locking device are cleverly bended into one piece where the S-clip secures the frame to the temple and creates a spring-like effect that allows both inwards and outwards spring movement of the temples for wearing comfort. It is a simple yet complex eyewear and adopts an environmental-friendly manufacturing process of none soldering, hence reducing adverse environmental impacts.
