Beckmans + StureOptikern at Fashion Week
Aug. 31, 2017
Fashion and Product Design students have collaborated across the design disciplines and designed eyewear for high-end optician StureOptikern. At Fashion Week Stockholm we're exhibiting the ideas for new spectacles for women and men as well as sunglasses.
Eyewear design is an important area of accessories design and a product range that is included in both the fashion world and the design world. In addition to embarking on eyeglass designs, the students have practiced to professionally relate to another design discipline as well as to a client.
"To professionally relate to a client is something that the students train throughout their entire study programme, and to be able to collaborate with an industry-leading company like StureOptikern in the first year, is very valuable to them," says Peter Nylander, Senior Lecturer at the Design programme and responsible for the course together with Göran Sundberg, Senior Lecturer at the Fashion programme.
Nine produced as prototypes
Nine of the eyeglass designs have been selected by Per Levin from Triple and Thomas Karlsson at StureOptikern and have been produced as prototypes.

All of the spectacles, sketches and prototypes are shown at the Jewellery and Accessories Lounge at Stockholms Auktionsverk, Nybrogatan 32 between August 31 - September 1.
