    Porsche is designing reading glasses now

    they don't look bad ... but... WHY?

    from autoblog.com

    If youth is wasted on the young, then wealth is surely wasted on the old. That might explain why you see so many middle-aged crises rolling around in Porsches. If the young could afford European sportscars, then Porsche Design probably wouldn't be turning out products like Porsche smoking pipes. Well, maybe they would, but they'd be used for other purposes. And these certainly wouldn't be part of the portfolio: Porsche Design Reading Glasses, for crying out loud.

    The P'8134 reading frames are made out of titanium and, mind you, are probably the nicest pair of reading glasses out there. I'm sure if my father were to trade in his Lexus for a Porsche, it'd be these reading specs he'd be forgetting to take off before getting into the car.

    and no corner without an Porsche Design logo... just to much!

    Re: Porsche is designing reading glasses now

    i dunno, but i actually quite like the Porsche Design stuff.
    clean, reduced to the max and stylish.
    just my 2 eurocents.

    Porsche Design is old F.A.'s design firm, now partly owned by PAG I think. Over the years they turned out some classic designs like the IWC chronograph watch and the aviator sunglasses to name just two.

    If they introduce a G-string then I'll buy one for Nberry!

    I don't know if a G-string would lend itself to being worn as a gag.

    Just the thought of Nick wearing a G-string "conventionally" would surely conjure up images which would be considered pornographic at best and might even be considered to be contrary to the Geneva convention if shown to a captive audience.

    Nberry will get ones that each car he looks at appears in a 911 shape!

    The logos on the plastic lenses are there only until you have prescription lenses fitted... so I don't think the logos which remain (the ones on the sides) are that 'in your face'.

    Just my view...

    Re: Porsche is designing reading glasses now

    Porsche Design is 100% owned by Porsche Automobil Holding SE

    Re: Porsche is designing reading glasses now

    Porsche Design and their peers are _always_ welcome in my life. It's got brains and compelling aesthetics on it's side.


    Otherwise we're left with mindless embellishment and ornamentation; it's what I like to call "Home Depot Design."

    for example:
