Polaroid Eyewear Celebrates 75 Years of Passion

Polaroid Eyewear Celebrates 75 Years of Passion

Polaroid Eyewear is celebrating its 75th Anniversary on Tuesday 30th October from 7pm to 10 pm at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City.  Guests will get to discover, explore and interact with the brand's technology and learn how Polaroid Eyewear is moving forward into the future.  

Guests will be invited to experience polarization through a striking glare installation which will demonstrate the unique and perfect vision of the Polaroid polarized lens, and will also have the opportunity to preview, touch and try the new Polaroid Plus sunglasses collection.

MoMA's collection of Architecture and Design includes an original pair of 1946 Polaroid sunglasses: a unique piece manufactured by the American Optical Corp. and donated to MoMA by Edgar Kaufmann Jr., heir to the famous family home Fallingwater designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.

Polaroid Plus Sunglasses
In the year of its 75th Anniversary, Polaroid Eyewear is introducing the new Polaroid Plus sunglasses Collection, which combines the latest results in polarization technology with a brand new style designed for a minimal and urban look.

Every pair of sunglasses features the Polaroid UltraSight™ Plus lenses, the evolution of the polarized lens, which are now also glue-free to ensure perfect vision, high protection and comfort: this is eye care at its best.

The Polaroid Plus collection is produced by Safilo Group and will be on sale worldwide starting from Spring 2013. The collection is available in 10 styles, each and every one of which features the new polarized technology.
