Modo introduces a new lightweight collection

The most fun part of wearing glasses has to be matching your frames with your mood. Sometimes you wake up and you know it’s the perfect day for your over-the-top big rimmed glasses. Other days, you want to go for something a lot more subtle and refined.



And for those minimalist days, Modo comes to the rescue. One of the things Modo is known for, is its collection of thin frames made of their special Beta Titanium. Super light frames that do not take over your whole face, instead they just add to it some refinement.



Building on their innovations in titanium frames, Modo now introduces us to Beta Titanium Air. A line of super minimalist styles that are even thinner and subtler than the original Beta Titanium frames. Very clean designs with thin lines and stripped of any unnecessary details – not that there were a lot left on a typical Modo frame – in soft blue, purple, burgundy or classic black.

As they say at Modo, these frames give you a ‘lighter-than-air comfort’. Sounds good to us!

Protect your children's eyes

Protect your children's eyes

In a time when some young children know how to scroll before they know how to turn the page of a book, it is extremely important to make parents aware of the possible long-term damage screens can cause to their children’s eyes…

Young children are spending more and more time behind screens instead of playing outside. This is of course not a new trend. Ever since the introduction of smartphones and i-Pads people have been talking about the need for children to go and play outside. And we’ve been hearing warnings about the negative consequences of screens on our eyes for years now. Staring at a screen for long periods at a time can cause severe nearsightedness in the future. But there are still many parents out there who don’t seem to realize just how damaging screens are to their children’s eyes.

Dutch eyecare organization Het Oogfonds is launching a campaign that aims to raise awareness with parents – and their children – about this topic. The slogan ’20-20-2, daar red je je ogen mee!’ (20-20-2, saves your eyes!’) encourages parents to install some new rules around screen time. After 20 minutes behind a screen, you focus on something in the far distance for 20 seconds, and you have to make sure you spent at least 2 hours per day in the broad daylight. All this is to prevent children from developing nearsightedness later on in life.

To create even more awareness, Amsterdam’s science museum NEMO is working together with Oogfonds by dedicating the family exhibition ‘Zo te Zien’ (‘See it Your Way’) to seeing. It demonstrates how our eyes work and how special but also delicate they are.

New e-sport brand ambassadors for SEIKO Vision

New e-sport brand ambassadors for SEIKO Vision

If there was ever a group of people who need to think about giving their eyes some love and care, it’s gamers. They spend hours and hours looking at screens, which is not only tiresome for the eyes but in the long run can also be damaging...

Being a gamer is no longer just a time-consuming hobby for teenage boys, it became an actual profession with gamers competing in games like FIFA on a worldwide scale. These online competitions are watched live on the internet by millions of people. The players that participate in these competitions tend to have serious fanbases that they reach directly through their social channels.

To become a professional e-sporter, you need to practice of course. Spending all those hours looking at a screen can wear your eyes out though. This is where glasses come into the story. More and more e-sporters are now seen wearing glasses while playing. By wearing glasses with special lenses, they give their eyes the proper care they need. These lenses help eyes to relax and give a comfortable and razor-sharp view, while at the same time protecting them from blue light.

 

SEIKO Vision recognizes the influence these players have. They were already working with Aristote Ndunu who plays online for Sparta Rotterdam. And now they introduce Thomas de Zeeuw (he also plays for Sparta just like Ndunu) and Eldridge O’Neill who is part of both the Manchester United and E_Oranje team as their new brand ambassadors.

With these ambassadors, SEIKO Vision is working hard to make people more aware of the need to take care of their eyes in this world where screens are more and more becoming an important part of our lives. Because you don’t have to be a professional gamer to benefit from these special lenses. Even if you are working behind a computer like a lot of people do or are on your smartphone a lot, it is wise to think about eye care and eye comfort.

A summer of (pro) cycling with Bollé

A summer of (pro) cycling with Bollé

Sports eyewear brand Bollé is partnering with pro cyclists to help them enhance their performance during this year’s Tour de France. Of course, Bollé’s range of sunglasses and lenses can also help you protect your eyes while working out outside...

Bollé is not a new player in the world of pro cycling. Their first pair of sports sunglasses, the Nylon Grand Sport, dates back to 1958 and was a pair of cycling glasses with which Bollé equipped cyclists during the Tour de France. During this year’s Tour de France, Bollé cyclists will introduce the new Volt+-lens, the first lens ever to be made with the use of artificial intelligence.

Normal high contrast lenses will usually enhance one particular color, while more or less diminishing all other colors. Volt+ is different. It enhances all colors the same, giving you a new experience of color and contrast. Bollé cyclist Jakob Fuglsang from the Astana team, will be wearing the Volt+-lens during the 2021 Tour de France: ‘The Volt+-lens helps me see the road more clearly, detect wet and moist spots better and distinguish different textures of asphalt confidently. It enhances my safety on the bike.' The Volt+-lens will be available in 4 variants for all Bollé frames on the market.

Besides introducing this new lens, Bollé also partnered with the B&B Hotels team and is providing them with sunglasses and some even with safety helmets. The team members will be wearing the Chronoshield and Lightshifter frames, inspired by famous Bollé sport sunglasses from the 1980s. These sunglasses have vents to prevent the buildup of fog and special Thermogrip inserts on the arms and nose so that even during intense activity the glasses will stay in place. Special Phantom lenses adapt to changing light conditions and enhance color contrasts.

You don’t have to be a pro cycler to benefit from the Bollé technologies. They offer a multitude of frames and lenses for athletes from all levels and outdoor disciplines.

So much to see during Rotterdam Art Week

So much to see during Rotterdam Art Week

Have you missed visiting places and SEEING beautiful things during the lockdown? If so, Rotterdam is definitely the place to be next weekend. The city will be filled with exhibitions, pop-up shows, and art and design fairs during Rotterdam Art Week...

Center of Rotterdam Art Week will be Art Rotterdam and design fair OBJECT, which will be held from the 1st until the 4th of July at the iconic Van Nelle Factory and the HAKA-building respectively. If there was ever a time when artists and designers were eager to connect with the public it has to be now, after months of being in lockdown. At Art Rotterdam, over 100 galleries will present work by up-and-coming artists but also more established ones. At the Van Nelle Factory visitors can see the art, meet the artists, and of course buy the art.

 

Design fair OBJECT will be focusing a lot on new design talent, giving recently graduated designers one of the first opportunities to show their work to the public. More than 100 designers will be showing furniture designs, lighting, textiles, jewelry, fashion, and architectural installations. If you see something you like, you can buy it on the spot. A special partnership with Catawiki allows you to also bid on prototypes or special editions of pieces of design in all price ranges.

One of the works on display at OBJECT has a special connection to NanaWoody&John, because of the material it is made of. Design studio Object Density from Eindhoven used deadstock optical lenses provided by a local optician to make a beautiful light piece named Lens Luminaire. An optical lens bends the light beams that fall through it and because no lens is ever the same the result is captivating. The Lens Luminaire shows the beauty of a lens that you can’t see at first sight.
