Bamboo Spectacle Frames Inspired by Chinese Ming Dynasty Furniture

Ming Bamboo Glasses by Yii Collection

Like the Ming Dynasty furniture that inspired them, these eyeglass frames by Taiwan’s Yii Collection echo the clean, elegant lines of carved rosewood designs from that era. And true to the Ming philosophy of order and minimalism, the lightweight specs are a perfect marriage of aesthetics, craftsmanship, and function. How else would you expect design geeks to frame their peepers?

    I cannot locate a US vendor nor any photo links on Yii’s website. Where can I find. Would buy immediately.
