New Materials - Moonrise by Ejing Zhang

As you know I am very inspired by materials these days. I could muse on interesting eyewear shapes for ages but what really intrigues me is the materials glasses are made with, so I am always on the lookout for new ones that could potentially be used in eyewear.

My latest find was Ejing Zhang's resin with embedded wood and colourful thread called Moonrise. Ejing developed it for her graduation project at the Royal College of Art which she crafted into jewellery (and curiously, a sushi box!) but I cannot stop thinking how nice it would look as sunglasses, maybe with a tuft of coloured thread sticking out on the sides of the frame?

Another designer who already incorporated dried flower petals in her recent sunglasses collection is Heidi.





And here is some inspiration from the king of 3D acetate patterns, Thierry Lasry!
