Alessi Sunglasses Stay Together Using Magnets Instead Of Screws [Pics]
The stylish sunglasses’ frames and hinges are held together with attracting force rather than traditional hardware.
For aesthetic and practical purposes, most of the screws and hinge pieces on a pair of sunglasses are quite small. This, in turn, makes them difficult to fix without taking them to a professional or else fiddling with the tiny repair kit. Alessi may have a better way.
The new Kompas collection of sunglasses from Alessi does away with tiny screws that can loosen, and instead features embedded magnets in the frames and hinges. As part of their extension in recent years into watches and accessories, Alessi teamed up with designer Frédéric Gooris to create these new titanium and acetate glasses that can fit a wide range of faces. Lightweight and hypoallergenic, the glasses come with adjustable nosepads for added comfort.
