From his extensive work in eyewear design, Yair Neuman has seen first-hand the hidden waste in the sector. Neuman’s Lens Light collection is a direct response, showing firstly that the waste exists, and secondly how this valuable material can be turned into beautiful, useful pieces. 

 

Neuman developed the waste lenses into a sheet material after extensive experimentation. The result is a material that is strong, aesthetically pleasing, and that clearly communicates the story of the plastic waste. 

Optical grade Polycarbonate/PMMA with

anti-glare coating. Salvaged from the landfill or worse, the incinerator, and made into design pieces.
