Vinylize eyewear is a revelation in eyewear development. We love the art that Vinylize has created by remodelling old vinyl records into beautiful statement pieces.
Each frame is individually hand crafted over a period of many months at their workshop based in Budapest.
The highest quality materials and master craftsmanship are combined to lovingly create each unique piece, which portrays the love Vinylize has for music, quality and individuality.
The Vinylize eyewear collection showcases the work of some of the best talents within the optical industry. These talents are designing and constructing awarding winning eyewear pieces, such as the classic round Ashby, which won the red dot design award 2016. It’s a very distinctive form with fresh details which gives the wearer a very distinguished and unique look. The frame consists of the highest quality materials. During a special process vinyl records are fused to cellulose acetate, the materials age and shrink at different rates which allows the frame to change shape and become concave, giving the eventual wearer a comfortable fit. The frame front is black with the original grooves from the vinyl record giving a textured finish. The acetate has a mixture of colours running through it which softens the look and adds a dimension to the piece. Palladium plated matt metal temples with 5-barrel spring hinges are added and the temple tip is fastened to the temple with a screw and inlayed with a miniature silver vinyl record.
“A clever design that bears witness to environmental awareness is at the origin of the Vinylize Ashby glasses. Their shape is emotionally appealing.”
