A collaboration with material scientists from Auburn University, Alabama: David Branscomb/Nakul Kothari to develop a designer eyewear with the patented braided composite yarn (US20130291476 A1). 

We adapted to the technical challenges and advantages of the material to produce minimalistic spectacles with a goal to simplify the manufacturing of eyewear frames.
