Tavat Kaffee Sunglasses

Tavat is tipping its hat to one of its founding designers, Norman Schureman, who is a former professor at the Pasadena Art Center College of Design. Recently, the company held a 'Design Flash,' where students worked with industry professionals to get a crash course in eyewear 101. The students also got their hands dirty, learning how to make frames of their own, the class was then challenged to create Tavat frames of their own. 

This resulted in one stand-out piece from designer, Miguel Harry, who created the “Kafée Racer,” a bold and angular aviator inspired by café racing. The frame echoes the aesthetics of café racing with a lightweight and functional design that's wrapped in lightweight titanium and acetate. 

Kafée Racer will be available this April.
