TEL AVIV, Israel—32°N sunglasses by Deep Optics has been named a winner in the 6th annual Dezeen Awards in the Product Design (consumer design and wearables) category for the year 2023. The annual Dezeen Awards program identifies the world’s best architecture, interiors, design and sustainability projects, as well as the studios and the individual architects and designers producing the most outstanding work. Organized by Dezeen, an influential architecture and design website, the Dezeen Awards are now in its sixth year and has become the benchmark for international design excellence.

32°N sunglasses are the first and only adaptive focus sunglasses, according to the company. 32°N sunglasses enable users to seamlessly switch between “reading mode” for near vision and “scenic mode” for far distances without changing their opacity. 32°N sunglasses addresses the needs of people suffering from presbyopia to use both reading glasses and sunglasses. Using patented dynamic liquid crystal lenses, the glasses switch from sunglasses to reading glasses with a single swipe. Users can add their own reading prescription using the 32°N app, making the glasses 100 percent personalizable.

In naming 32°N sunglasses the winner, Dezeen Awards judges commented, “Revolutionary technology and an exciting development for those with sight impairment. Seemingly simple integration of advanced technologies to correct the user’s vision. Hardware can be updated to change with user’s prescription. Great potential for further development.”
