SILMO OPTICAL DESIGN CONTEST
Inaugurated this year, the first SILMO Optical Design Contest awarded Adi Abramov, a student at the Shenkar College of Engineering, Design and Art in Ramat Gan, Israel.
The members of the jury, presided by designer Emmanuel Gallina, unanimously chose his project “Unfoldable. X”, eyeglasses and sunglasses with a sharp, minimalist aesthetic, in recycled plastic, with no screws or hinges, featuring temples that may be detached in a simple step thanks to an ingenious high-tech X-shaped construction.
Adi Abramov’s objective was to create eco-friendly designer frames of which the industrial process rationalises production and limits the use of materials.
To review, the Optical Design Contest aims to stimulate creation and innovation, and to reveal the future talents set to design tomorrow’s eyewear. This international competition is open to all students over the age of 18 who are currently enrolled in a design programme and who can demonstrate having already completed at least three years of higher education or the equivalent.
