Re-imagine the Future of Eyewear
The Nike Wing is a collaboration between Nike, VSP Innovation Lab, and Zeiss to re-imagine the design and manufacturing process of eyewear and create a revolutionary frame for elite athletes. The design consists of a unibody lens that is joined by a silicone rubber strap, eliminating pressure from the bridge of the nose and behind the ears.

I worked on this project back in 2014 when I was an intern at the VSP Innovation Lab. My roles included concept exploration and rapid prototyping of the nose-pad section.

The final Nike Wing design was published in 2016, the nose-pad went through quite a few changes, but still maintained some of the original design intent that I worked on.
