- The Process of Perfection

  1. Production CADs denote how and where each frame will be cut from sheets of custom-designed acetate
  2. Acetate sheets are cut by machine, specific to the shape of each frame
  3. Extracting the raw frame shape from its acetate sheet
  4. The manual, hand filing process carves raw angles into each prototype…
  5. … Followed by further shaping and refining by hand
  6. Acetate frame fronts and their corresponding temples
  7. A metal hinge is fused into acetate for integrity of strength; no adhesives or glues are ever used in Oliver Peoples products
  8. Using a lens pattern, the frame and lenses are matched
  9. Along with the most advanced machinery in the world, hand tools like calipers and files are still utilized to create our eyewear
  10. For a limited-edition product like the Sir Series Vintage capsule, the temple caps are hand-tooled with our signature designs

Illustrator and designer Akihiro Mizuuchi designed a modular system for creating edible chocolate LEGO bricks. Chocolate is first poured into precisely designed moulds that after cooling can be popped out and used as regular LEGOs. It’s hard to determine exactly how functional they are, it seems like he had success in building a number of different things, though I can only imagine how quickly they might melt in your hands, but I suppose that’s beside the point; this is two of the greatest things in the world fused together. If you google around there are numerous attempts at creating various forms of LEGO in chocolate or other food, but this appears to be the most detailed and well-designed of anything out there.
