Blooming Folding Eyewear by Sonja Iglic

Home > Winners > #57916


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Blooming

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Folding Eyewear

INSPIRATION:
Inspiration comes from growth and metamorphosis of all beings. Blooming flowers are used as symbols of change and development and are presented as movable petals. I intended to create multi purpose items, that can adapt to specific needs of the wearer by personal changes throughout the day.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The main focus of this conceptual piece is in it's ability to be changed at any point without an extensive effort of the wearer. This function of multiple looks alongside the folding system is what makes these accessories stand out. Once folded, the eyewear becomes compact which makes it really easy to carry around.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
All the petals are connected to the metal frame with rivets. This system makes the change of the position of petals really easy. The petals can be pushed around the rivet in full circle. This system makes many different looks possible just by overlapping the petal shapes in a different way or positioning the petals differently in relation to the face. The frame itself is also connected with rivets, so the closing system works in a similar manner as the petals.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The whole project developement lasted around 3 months. It started in January 2016 and was finished in April 2016 in Belgrade. This item is just one of the whole Blooming collection of jewellery and eyewear. The whole collection was exhibited in Porte de Versailles in Paris during The International Jewellery Show Bijorhca Paris in September 2016.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The whole collection is made by hand out of 18k gold plated brass alongside the multiple laser cut plexiglass with flower prints.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Fully opened eyewear dimensions 150 mm x 120 mm x 160 mm Fully closed eyewear dimensions 100 mm x 85 mm x 40 mm

TAGS:
Eyewear, Metal, Gold, Flower, Sculpture, Wearable, Color, Foldable, Versatile, Jewelry

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
This project demanded an extensive investigation of the historical development of spectacle frames (visually and technically), in order to achieve a modern solution with a clear influence of the first types of frames.

CHALLENGE:
The biggest challenge was the ergonomic part of the eyewear's frames. It was very difficult to create the frames foldable and at the same time to achieve one continues flowing line that forms the final shape (both folded and opened).

NAME:
Sonja Iglic

PROFILE:
After completing a master degree in scenography at Faculty of Applied Arts in Belgrade, Sonja has decided to go back to her first love, jewellery. Having a background in Theatre and Film, the natural result is her out of the ordinary, conceptual jewellery. The brand is oriented to be inspired and moved by a certain idea, story or concept. Never thinking about the material or the finished product, focused on the idea, moving through the project. That’s why the end product is always something new, and really one of a kind. Always trying to change people’s thought of what jewellery should be. Her brand represents the idea that jewellery is not necessary, it’s pure luxury. Jewellery should be anything that relates to the body and is designed as a means of communication. The focus are the stories, ideas and ways to shape them into something more.
