RETROSPECTIVE

1985 - 2015


To describe the alchemy of Peter Coombs’ imaginative eyewear, you’ll find the words not only in the austere principles of design, but also in the broader realms of storytelling, architecture, art making, mythology, engineering, history and culture. These are frames that conjure their power from a more ingenious place, fearlessly surpassing the boundaries of function to forge themselves into existence in an expressive field of vision dappled with humor, poetry and dreams.
— Gai Gherardi, l.a.Eyeworks
