The outstanding design, utility, and “relevance for everyday life” of OVVO Optics’ Junior Collection has been recognised with a prestigious 2021 iF Design Award.
Already the winner of a Good Design Australia Award, and an IDA Award, OVVO Optics is a family owned and operated company established in 2011. Each frame is hand-crafted in Europe and distributed in Australia by Aaron’s Eyewear.
The awarded Junior Collection re-imagines OVVO’s signature stainless steel and titanium frames to suit the smaller faces of kids and teens aged three to 12 years.
The material has been reworked into a lightweight frame that’s comfortable and gentle, and OVVO’s patented screwless hinge, seen on all its full-sized frames, has been redesigned to fit the smaller specs, without losing its flexibility or durability. The composite is remarkably resilient, helping the frames maintain their shape and integrity over time.
Within the Junior Collection, there are five pairs of glasses designed especially for kids and teens. Each of the five frame styles comes in three sizes, along with customisable frame colours, temple colours, and temple lengths, enabling customers to create their perfect pair from 945 combinations.
“We are proud to be awarded a 2021 iF Product Design Award for our Junior Collection,” said Margareta Augustyn, co-founder and marketing director of OVVO. “Our team is constantly inspired to evolve the possibilities of eyewear, both in terms of artistic design and technological innovation, and as this collection proves, that inspiration extends to our youngest customers as well.”
The iF Product Design Awards started in 1954. Winners are chosen by a jury of top artists, designers, and architects from around the world, and span multiple disciplines, with more than 5,500 entries every year. OVVO joins a select group of winners in the Product Design category for 2021, including Apple, Samsung, and Google, along with leaders in avant-garde innovation like Rado, Bang & Olufsen, and Ferrari.
