Nendo's Magne-Hinge Uses Magnets to Create Customizable Frames

Nendo's Magne-Hinge customizable glasses let you change up your look without having to purchase multiple pairs of spectacles. The Japanese design firm swapped out screws in their latest design, allowing for replaceable, removable arms in a variety of colors. The 0.8mm carved titanium frames use layered magnets that are hooked together to do this, making the customizable glasses more flexible and less likely to break.

Magne-Hinge allows the optometry challenged more creativity and individuality. Instead of purchasing several pairs of glasses, you are only buying the style of temples you'd like. With more color and pattern options, you can mix and match to define your sense of style more clearly and easily express yourself.

Nendo presented Magne-Hinge at Milan Design Week 2014.
