RE-PAIR Lab | In Collaboration with REFORMA Eyewear - Aya Bentur and Michael Tsinzovsky

We see repairing as a driving energy in design. Repairing calls for improvisation, spontaneity and learning through error, providing a trigger for innovation. Developing a solution through an iterative process constantly pushes creation forward.
By examining the object as a whole and as individual parts, we raise questions regarding the object as we have come to know it, with slight changes we achieve new insights. In a world of abundance, we see a necessity in looking at an object as a possibility; as what it can become, how can it affects our daily use and behavior.

In the lab we invite you to experience our process and get acquainted with the world of eyewear. When glasses break it is almost an instinct to take a piece of tape or a wire, wrap it around the broken part - and it's fixed. Here we suggest that the broken holds opportunity, beauty and imagination. The seemingly basic materials can be transformed into new meanings and new forms. Play, shape, break, fix and shape again. By RE-pairing, you can create a second life for a frame, using the language of repairs to create your own interpretation.
