The most common thing to break on a pair of glasses or sunglasses tends to be the hinge. Philippe Starck's new Sphere Collection aims to solve that issue with a new hinge that requires no screws or welds to be attached to the frame. This hinge also gives the temples multidirectional movement for improved fit and comfort. This is combined with an ultra-lightweight frame made out of their Gravity Eco high-tech polymer and an equally light pair of titanium temples.
