戴美儿:没有眼镜就不会思考
“没了眼镜就不会思考”,戴美儿的眼镜宣言语出惊人,她是香港时尚眼镜品牌“Genic Eyewear”的创始人,在她的设计理念当中, 时尚、摄影、建筑、音乐或美容都可以作为设计灵感来源。但归根结底,她认为适合的才是最好的。因此,她致力于为塌鼻子亚洲人设计最适合佩戴的个性化眼镜,这个鼻梁上的小小物件,如果选对了可以与佩戴者融为一体,甚至让人觉得离开了它就“不会思考”。

除了分享这独具一格的设计理念,戴美儿还通过图片分享了“Genic Eyewear”品牌推出的多款产品。这些眼镜为切合亚洲人较扁鼻梁,鼻托做得较高,另备有复古形状、浮夸颜色或纹理,令眼镜不止于必需品,而是代表个性的时尚配饰。 戴美儿说,既然要做个性化设计,就要将个性化进行到底。因此她开设了“造一副属于自己的眼镜”工作坊,让参加者只需利用简单工具,花上数小时便能亲手造出独一无二、属于自己的眼镜。

Hailing from Australia, Annie is an award-winning curator working with art, technology, and contemporary issues. With many years of experience in different locations around the world, Annie is now a dear friend of Taiwan. She became deeply involved in Taiwanese culture after receiving a “Trip View Bowl” as gift. She thought that the blue-and-white porcelain bowl was beautiful but it needed someone to tell its story to global audiences. Soon after, Annie started a major book project to find 100 iconic products and interview the designers. Many challenges were on the way but she was brave and motivated to finish the work. Annie says: When I follow my dream, I see “impossible” as “I’m possible”.
