Charity + Frames

In an inspiring collaboration with Cooper Hewitt, the Smithsonian Design Museum, Warby Parker has designed a limited-edition optical frame and aptly named it the Cooper in Heritage Bronze. 

Crafted in premium, lightweight Japanese titanium with coil temples, these round-lensed glasses are a contemporary interpretation of philanthropist Andrew Carnegie’s inimitable style of frames. Carnegie, a leader in disciplines ranging from poetry to technology, embodied the spirit of inquiry and philanthropy that Cooper Hewitt continues to manifest.

The Cooper in Heritage Bronze reflects the high-quality design and classic style intrinsic to both Warby Parker and Cooper Hewitt.

In celebration of this partnership, Warby Parker will be making a donation toward future DesignPrep programs at the museum’s Design Center in Harlem. And as always, for every pair of collaboration frames sold, a pair will be distributed to someone in need.

Here’s a peek at these smart-looking spectacles:

Before I let you go, I really do enjoy these frames since they remind me of Harry Potter. Yes, I am one of those nerds who read all of the books since I was like in 5th grade and have seen all of the movies! I mean these frames can’t get any better than that!! 😉
