The project that brings space missions into fashion, sunglasses made with materials used in space exploration
“Humanity is just an advanced race of apes on a minor planet of a very average star. But it can understand the universe. That makes it something very special”, said Stephen Hawking.
Humanity comes to understand the universe because it is drawn to it from childhood. A 2019 study in China found that 56% of children want to be astronauts. 68% believe that humans will be able to live on another planet. 95% dream of going to space.
In order to go into space, after learning to use materials such as titanium, unique in its lightness and flexibility, and indestructible at the same time. Materials of the highest level that the creators of Exers have decided to use in their products.
Exers is a project born from the passion for space of the founders, dreamers and designers who love the universe. A team that decided to put space missions in a pair of glasses. Not only titanium, but also grilamid and silicone for the frame, and thermoplastic material for the lenses, elastic and super impact resistant. FYI, if a careless friend accidentally sits on the Exers, the glasses flatten out and then go back to the way they were.
“Looking for the solution for a disruptive, extra flexible yet elegant and durable product. What is durable and resistant? Astronauts,” say the creators of Exers, “feeling like astronauts on their first mission, with the enthusiasm of someone who has always dreamed of space and now has finally reached it. To make everyone who wears these glasses feel like an astronaut on their first mission.”
Two models, a teardrop model and a futuristic mask. Both combine great innovation in materials and incomparable resistance to external agents with a current and recognizable style. There are glasses with an attractive design but not very durable, or resistant but with little character. Exers, on the other hand, is the meeting point between design and technological research applied to materials.
The project started on Kickstarter with a goal of 15,000 euros in 30 days and the possibility, for those who will support it, to pre-order a pair of Exers at 40 euros, compared to 160 at which it is expected to enter the market. Each pair of glasses has a serial number and is unique. A ridiculous price to feel a bit like an astronaut and wear an indestructible pair of glasses “created from the future”.
