Eyewear is not just a functional item, it is also a fashion accessory and can even be considered a carrier of art. The Korean design studio, DESIGNSHOWER, advocates the philosophy that “Life is Art” and creates eyewear styles that are structurally, visually, and chromatically distinct from ordinary “glasses.” DESIGNSHOWER was founded by ZONEFEEL KIM, one of the first eyewear designers in Korea who began designing glasses in 1996. He has always believed that glasses are the best items for self-expression. Over the years, he has continued to explore the essence of eyewear and eventually started crafting them himself, using an artistic approach to create lines with tension and rich color elements, and personally turning his designs into physical products. He handles all the processes himself, including cutting, polishing, and assembling, and each pair of glasses is unique. He can also adjust the size and color according to customers’ request, reflecting the variability of handcrafted products.
The surface of the handmade glasses made by DESIGNSHOWER has a rough feeling, but it is this original touch without much modification that has become a major feature of DESIGNSHOWER. In addition, the nose bridge designed by the brand has many different shapes, which are unique and interesting, highlighting the distinctive tonality of the glasses, and can also naturally highlight the unique taste and style of the wearer.
