Tai / Protection Glasses


The ant, a symbol of organized labor in most cultures of the world, is the inspiration of goggles Tai, as it is called the arthropod in the language of native Indians of Brazil, the Tupi.
It rests on three points in the face: forehead, nose and ears. Its front bridge is removable, which facilitates the cleaning of lenses. Their stems turn in both directions and have a magnetic system, made out of Neodymium, that define four positions. (1) Directed upward, resembling the antennae of the ant, (2) the horizontal position, for use, (3) down, to be hung and (4) closed, to be stored occupying minimal space.
