Carelasses / Glasses

Carelasses
Carelasses

Glasses are considered one’s second eyes. Many designers have collaborated and researched to invent more comfortable and stronger designs to protect and sustain the life-span of glasses for a very long time. Yet, there were never invulnerable glasses. Carelasses on the contrary, are meant to break apart after a certain period of use. Rather than trying to turn impossible into possible, Carelasses embraces the problem and expects for it to happen. In fact, the advantage of their mass production and the low cost allows for temporary use and makes Carelasses into a necessary item in the contemporary society.
