Design by subtraction
Designers of our favorite Home Aquaponics Tank, San Francisco based Daylight Design come to us with a rather astute observation. Anything you rest on a flat surface should have a flat surface to match right? That’s the reasoning behind a tiny yet rather pleasant design detail in the Lean Glasses.
The glasses boast of an incredibly minimal language. Fitting every part of the spectacle into the width of a slim black pipe, the Lean Glasses look uniform throughout, except for the slight truncation on the top and bottom of the frames around the lenses. The reason? To give the glasses a flat surface to coincide with the flat tabletops they rest on. That’s officially one less problem that’ll bother me now!
