AHEAD OF ITS TIME

This was an unbriefed project, that when I started at Bollé, felt so strongly that it should exist, I spent a Friday & created it. I presented it to the team and they loved it. The Chronoshield 2 was then added to the product road map and development began. I first started by white light scanning the original Chronoshield to use as an underlay in CAD as a reference for fit and sizing. Quick sketches moved to 3D and numerous prints followed to refine fit, panto angle, frame size, & temple length. Once complete, development with our Italian manufacturer began. The result is a new iconic design to help elevate the Bollé brand back to where they once stood.
