Recent releases from Gold & Wood Eyepieces are setting a higher industrial standard of craftsmanship and ingenuity. Executing complex and innovative veneers of noble materials including natural horn and rare woods is the specialty of this luxury eyewear manufacturer.

Veneers of speckled brown hazelnut, aluminum and maple paired with a brushed stainless steel temple

The exclusive use of only the mature growth of valued timber  ensures the durability and longevity of each Gold & Wood frame. Species of  harder woods featuring finer grains yield extraordinary results.

An exceptional combination of black carbon fiber, ebony and brown maple.

Eyewear Innovations

15 Nov
2016

In developing the theme for their latest collection the forward thinking design team behind BEVEL Eyewear reflected upon the achievements of some independent spirits of the past.

New models are named after boundary-pressing figures from a variety of fields and disciplines. Susan B. Anthony (American social reformer and feminist activist), Marie Curie ( physicist and chemist), and Thomas Edison (inventor) are some of the innovators sighted as sources of inspiration.

As though  through some form of transmutation, conventional acetates were alerted to appear more contemporary and distinctive.
BEVEL’s craftsmen polished and then matted their new models to produce a smooth finish. The frames’ edges were chiseled to give each piece a raw, 3-dimensional look. It’s a minor alteration that makes a big impression.

Seven new colours, including Orchid and Royal Blue and Saddle Tortoise, seem to swirl and morph as light plays upon the matted and opalescent frame surfaces.

BEVEL Eyewear’s innovative and hand-crafted collections can be found at all Josephson Opticians locations throughout Toronto.

The Statement Piece

05 Nov
2016

To the reserved ‘wallflower’ seeking greater exposure, or the ‘bell-of-the-ball’ eager to make a grander entrance, Michel Henau’s new collection offers hope!  Josephson Optician’s has received a variety of  unconventional statement pieces sure to command attention.

The company’s founder and Marc Delagrange were both independent opticians in their native Belgium. Their mutual admiration and artistic approaches to design ensured that they inspired each other.

Since the death of his collaborator,  Marc has been designing from the perspective of the frame wearer, ensuring the comfort and functionality of each frame.  The simplicity of his shapes are enhanced by the striking use of colour and material.

Bolder styles, such as Odorono, are now available with translucent coloured frame fronts. This feature of the Xtra series offers the classic model more depth and complexity.

We invite you to view an inspiring assortment from the Michel Henau collection at Jospehson Optician’s Flagship location.
