Screwless hinge designed by Boston Club

Vision Guaranteed

Screwless hinge designed by Boston Club

The screwless hinge was designed by Boston Club exclusively for the Japonism Projection eyewear collection. This entailed overcoming the challenge of creating a high quality, durable product that eliminates the need for conventional hinges and mounting screws. Over time, the hinge and particularly the tiny screws can become problematic if the eyeglasses are worn continually. The new rudder hinge of the eyeglasses had to reliably connect the glass frame and the arms, be wear-resistant, and the material was not allowed to degrade, e.g., when eyeglasses are left in a hot car. Open-and-close tests show that conventional hinges start showing wear after just 1,000-5,000 cycles. The rudder hinge from Victrex PEEK, by comparison, still exhibits no sign of fatigue or wear even after 20,000 cycles.
