The theme of 2013 competition: «1-100 ans », eyewear for babies and elderly people. This year, 221 projects were examined, 15 projects were selected, and finally 3 projects were awarded! Projects were prototyped by eyewear manufacturers. The 2 winning designs are by Edouard FABRE, Mathieu BRIAND & Nicolas PATRIX from ENSAD – Paris, for the frame “MIRETTES” and Marine DAVAINE from ESAD – Reims for “PRESBYS”.
The aim of Presbys is to provide a reworked version of both reading glasses for women and the “loss prevention” cord. These glasses are only used occasionally so an object should be created that women can wear all day long. Thanks to magnets placed in the acetate frame, it is very easy to fold it and unfold.
