Byoengchan Oh and Chihyun Son Spotlights The 07:25 Eyewear

Byoengchan Oh and Chihyun Son, the architect of the award winning project Eyewear by Byoengchan Oh and Chihyun Son illustrates, 07:25 is a special eyewear using the wood with the metal as a supplementary material. Wood is usually not used for glasses. it is low in strength, which makes it fragile and its low elasticity makes it difficult to replace lenses. The innovation of a ‘Metallic rim’ allows both reinforce the wood frame and easily change the lenses. Design of 07:25 eyewear is inspired by the similarity of shape between watch and glasses frames. The right lens 'Metallic rim' indicates 'hour' and the left lens 'Metallic rim' indicates 'minutes'..
