Celebrated designer Philippe Starck infuses immaculate artistry and pioneering styling into every item he produces with his flair for design that has spanned from luggage, clothing and furniture to posh condos and plush hotels across the world. His Starck Eyes collection is, of course, no exception.
His passion for honed designs and specially crafted materials are reflected in the Starck BioCity eyewear line from which the striking Starck SH 3007 glasses have emerged. These glasses are a form of innovation to be had with their lightweight, slim, full-rim frame, trendy slimline arms, classic shape and discreet branding; lending the frames a superior quality of distinction over relevance.
The 3007 spectacles also feature a bio link hinge, which is a patented micro-articulation, inspired by the human clavicle and its multi-directional freedom. The metal bio link hinge is machined out of a single block of medical stainless steel and ensures exceptional comfort and durability. Coming to us from Italy, these frames are made of a very valuable manufactured material, Zyl, and are available in a Matte Black or Matte Brown.
The BioCity eyewear collection draws inspiration from what Starck defines as bionism- inspirations from organic matter to create technologies better suited for human beings. Their designs are produced based on strongly articulated values including an emphasis on style and function and reject attention-seeking branding, thus giving way to a distinctly masculine character inherent in each frame.
Starck himself has an eye for transforming items of every day, including our beloved spectacles, into something more.
“His anticipatory concern for environmental implications, his profound comprehension of contemporary mutations, his enthusiasm for imagining new lifestyles, his determination to change the world, his devotion to a positive reduction, his love of ideas, his desire to defend the intelligence of usefulness - and the usefulness of intelligence - have accompanied one iconic creation after the other.”
The Paris, France born innovator had delved into artistic directing which propelled his career in the design industry after being hired by seasoned fashion designer Pierre Cardin who admired Starck’s iconoclastic designs. This artistic genius can be seen in each and every design to come out of the Starck Eyes series.
