DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
fassamano

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Reading Glasses

INSPIRATION:
The spark of the idea behind Fassamano happened at a dinner in Milan where, chatting about history, art, design, fashion, while sipping an excellent wine, nobody could read the label written in font eight. It is estimated that by the next decade one in four people in the world will need reading glasses due to presbyopia and at the same time daily lives command instant and on the go reads of all sorts of screens.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Fassamano are the new Italian hand made reading glasses to be worn around the neck, like a precious jewel and brought close to the eyes when needed to focus on object up close. In an instant, it enables focussed close up reading power , to capture a message on the smartphone , a restaurant menu or that small detail that escapes the eye. Useful and carefully designed, Fassamano is an analogic answer to the needs of a digital world.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The unique visionary spectacles that magnify your reading power and your charm in the blink of an eye. Descending from the magnificent 18th century Venice, when a slight shortness of sight was considered attractive and a perfect occasion to wear a precious accessory. In an instant, with an elegant and chic gesture your Fassamano will let you clearly close up and read a message on your smartphone or a restaurant menu or that small detail that escapes the eye.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:

The eye rims are polished with a glossy finish and the linear nose bridge is in contrasting metal with satin finish.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Fassamano sets a new way to solve near distance reading optical problem common to millions of people.. In Europe the number of presbyopic people is on the constant rise and in Italy alone they are 20 million. At the same time, nowadays is increasing the requirement of instant reading especially of screens. Fassamano reinvents an authentic object of the past adding quality and design to functionality.

CHALLENGE:
The idea behind Fassamano is to redefine this design category, combining functionality and aesthetics with an iconic and essential design. For the design of the glasses , the aim was to reach a synthesis of pure forms. Though for e-commerce shipping and delivery requirments, the vacuum packaging was designed to minimizes shipping costs while maximizing protection and reducing waste.
