“Screws are the bane of an optician’s life.”
– (Optician, 2013)
This statement of frustration is not only shared by opticians, but among glasses users themselves. Whether it is a slight knock, bump or even an unfortunate event of someone accidentally sitting on your glasses, can cause frame misalignment. Furthermore screws are known to work themselves loose due to the constant opening and closing of the glasses frame. Many find the reassembly of these tiny screws into the frame to be awkward and cumbersome, and this ongoing exasperation is the main inspiration behind this project.
The project aims to combat these problems by using the super-elastic metal called Nitinol. As well as being strong and durable, this shape memory alloy possesses a springy, rubber like elasticity which makes them perfect for glasses. Spectacles keep their shape and position without the need for the fiddly, easy to lose screws used to make the traditional glasses. The screwless, super-elastic glasses bow and bend, but always return to form.

Cell Reading Bookshelves concept was inspired by the cell and was derived from the vital need of a place where an individual can read without any kind of disturbance. In order to make a dedicated place that offers the calm environment as well as comprehensive privacy, this design comprises two major parts. First one is an innovative book shelf where the user can keep books of almost any size. Second part is a big vacuole shaped reading room where the user can grovel or lie on the cushion while enjoying the pleasure of reading in a relaxed way. Moreover, this reading place includes adequate lightening facility for the readers.
