In his series ‘Master Plan’, designer Chad Wright is conflating a child’s sandcastle with architecture typifying postwar American suburbia. Chad grew up in a sprawling suburb of Southern California, he lived in a tract house (symbol of the American Dream) just like his neighbors. When he was young, him and his brother would build cities in the sand. Chad chose this artifacts from his childhood, combining them to create ‘Master Plan’. It is phase one of what will be a three-part series. He focuses on the mass-produced tract house, re-examining it as symbol for the model American Dream that seems to come to nothing, just like his installation | http://www.ignant.de/2013/07/25/master-plan/

OLIVER PEOPLES // OUR ELEMENTS AND MATERIALS
- The Process of Perfection
Production CADs denote how and where each frame will be cut from sheets of custom-designed acetate
Acetate sheets are cut by machine, specific to the shape of each frame
Extracting the raw frame shape from its acetate sheet
The manual, hand filing process carves raw angles into each prototype…
… Followed by further shaping and refining by hand
Acetate frame fronts and their corresponding temples
A metal hinge is fused into acetate for integrity of strength; no adhesives or glues are ever used in Oliver Peoples products
Using a lens pattern, the frame and lenses are matched
Along with the most advanced machinery in the world, hand tools like calipers and files are still utilized to create our eyewear
For a limited-edition product like the Sir Series Vintage capsule, the temple caps are hand-tooled with our signature designs
