Splendid Vintage Snaps Of Young Girls With Very Big Hair In The 1980s

The 1980s can be categorized as a decade of excess.

Custom Spectacles Craftsman From Chicago Re-Invents The Frame With Light-Reflecting Eyewear

1

Since 2005, Scott Urban has been creating bespoke wooden eyeglasses for clients all over the world. Now, his latest mission is to make eyewear shine — literally. He is calling them Reflectacles and they work by borrowing the same highly reflective technology used on road signs. Reflectacles improve night visibility for bicyclists and pedestrians, while they also provide facial-privacy from the highly invasive camera-phone culture. If his past work is any indication, Reflectacles will be made with the highest attention to detail. I would know; I own a pair of Scott’s expertly crafted wood spectacles.

I first met Scott back in 2006 at a DIY craft fair in Chicago. While most of the vendors had a tented space with neat little displays, Scott showcased his beautifully hand carved wooden specs on a suspended bicycle which he had converted into a table. And he wasn’t selling anything; he was just spreading the word on his newest creations. I took a liking to the kid (at the time) and I have been following his work ever since. Throughout the years, Scott has always maintained his Do-Everything-Yourself mentality, and he is bringing this same approach to Reflectacles.

“People in eight cities have stopped me on the street to ask where they could get their own pair, and they were the hit of the playa at Burning Man this year — they turned out especially great in the dark, catching the ambient light of the art cars and the flashes on peoples’ cameras.” – Cory Doctorow (via BoingBoing)


I first reached out to Scott Urban four years ago to have my own pair of his custom work. He invited me into his workshop where he lives with his dog and has amassed a large collection of well designed objects from thrift stores and garage sales. I mean, he had stacks of Eames chairs that it seemed he preferred to study rather than sit in. He pulled out calipers to measure my facial features, showed me many different wood options and he wanted to feel me out over a beer to assess my personal style. After many rounds of design options and a few months later, I was wearing his impeccably crafted eyewear and still do to the day.
