It's not uncommon to see sunglasses with some wooden detailing on them, but Qoowl takes this style to new heights with its sunglasses made from wood. These sunglasses are made from a single sheet of plywood, which has been cut into to create slots that you can see through. Amazingly, the glasses do not have any additional fasteners, and use a curved design on its sides to make the transition from frame to arm.

On top of this, the glasses are exceptionally lightweight, weighing in at just 14 grams. The unique frames can be worn on their own, but they're also unobtrusive enough to wear over another pair of glasses. In keeping with the theme of the construction of the glasses, the packaging for the sunglasses also comes in a box that's made from a single sheet of cardboard.
