Launched last year, the Optical Design Contest is preparing a new opus with the same objective: to be a springboard for the next generation and stimulate creative innovation in eyewear through the eyes of students from design schools around the world. Based on the highest standards, this second edition is evolving with an unavoidable theme that will be in the news in 2023 and 2024: sport.
Chaired by Marie-Christine DORNER and made up of optics and design professionals, the jury met in mid-June to evaluate the projects received from the various design schools and select the most relevant.
They will have the honor of creating a prototype and unveiling it at SILMO Paris to determine the 2023 winner.
