100% Optical celebrate extraordinary talent of next generation designers

The RCA Eyewear design competition’s theme for the 100% Optical 2019 show was 2020 Vision in Motion. The Royal College of Art students were asked to design and make a maquette of a new vision device, which functions as a health aid/ protection as well as a style statement. The design was also allowed to include a viewfinder/ device/ VR headset.

Six finalists were chosen by the judging panel of designers Walter Berwick, Lawrence Jenkin and RCA tutor Flora Mclean. The finalists’ designs were displayed in the entrance to the Eyewear Hall with the winner Annie Foo announced at the show. Annies winning design ‘Party on Face’, used music and fashion as an expression designing the glasses so they would light up and flash in time to music.

This year’s finalists:


Andrew Cullo




Annie Foo (Winner!)




Fi Grew




Guilia Lombardi
