Experiment No. 1 - Skateboard Shades by Shwood Eyewear

The guys over at Shwood,makers of fine wooden sunglasses, seem to be having a lot of fun these days. Recently they teamed up with Keith Hufnagel of HUF to ride around the streets of Los Angeles and to create a pair of Skatebaord Shades, which are made from the plywood of skateboards. It’s a pretty cool process how he makes the glasses and prepares the wood, such as gluing the pieces together (duh) but then he vacuum seals them I guess instead of using clamps? Technology these days! The finished products look pretty slick, though sadly I’m told they’re not for sale, they’re just for fun.

    The Vuerich Brothers have created a similar product that is apparently for sale this summer. In addition the design was nominated for the INDEX: Design to Improve Life Awards 2011.
