JF Rey – gold V award for Double Jeu

Jean-François Rey won the gold V Award (category Optical Frame) at the Hong Kong Optical Fair 2018 for his collection DOUBLE JEU, with the model JF2800 0530. Organized by Visionairs of Style (VOS), this famous international eyewear competition in Asia-Pacific is a wonderful international distinction for Jean-François Rey, but also the opportunity to highlight the technological know-how and very distinctive creativity of the designer.


The jury, made up of stylists, international journalists, opticians and optical teachers, rewarded the originality of this colorful metal frame that subtly hides two extremely thin metal frames. Superimposed one on the other, they give the illusion of one and the same frame, for an absolutely bluffing result! The visual effect is enhanced by the original cut of Nylor lenses and the bi-coloring work, entirely done by hand. The design plays the creative duality and puts on strong contrasts that underline the graphic and contemporary style of the model.

The award was received with a great pleasure by the whole team, suppliers and plants in Jura who closely worked and contributed to the success of this challenge.
