Optical Design Eye’deas for a Creative Eyewear Display
This fun “Eye-dea” was brought in by a customer who had seen something similar in a European optical shop. The creative eyewear display featured a grid of hanging glasses displayed in the storefront windows. Together with Signs for Success designer Vanessa Bogensberger, they brainstormed ideas and expectations for a similar design.
After considering logistics, time and product choices, they narrowed material down to painted wood. “At first we were going to manufacture with a single layer of 3/8″ wood, but once we started, it made more sense to sandwich three layers of 1/8″ wood,” Vanessa explained. The center layer had a slightly bigger opening for the “lenses” to fit in, so they looked like they do in real glasses. The outer edges of all three layers was identical, so once glued together, we could seal and paint the edges, and they looked seamless.”
The creative eyewear display features different styles of larger-than-life glasses and sunglasses that hang inside a line of windows. They add an iconic backdrop for the interior décor that can still be seen from outside the office when backlit.
