It is now six years since we released our first sustainable collection of hand-made fashion glasses. We were from the beginning considerate of the enviroment and the people who manufacture our glasses. As a pioneer within the combination of sustainability and eyewear, it has not been without its challenges. 2016 now marks the year that monkeyglasses® finally got recognized on the international scene by receiving the Silver A' Design Award at A' Sustainable Products, Projects and Green Design 2016.
The A' Design Awards is one of the world's largest and most influential design awards. The Silver A' Design Award is awarded to the top 5% percentile designs that have achieved a high level of perfection in design. This prestigious award is presented each year in Italy and is judged anonymously by a grand expert jury. The grand jury panel consists of 83 internationally influential members and this year there was 6000+ projects divided in about 90 categories.
