Do you remember the visit at Cold Heggem?
It’s been a few months since we were past the Copenhagen based craftsman, who makes bespoke glasses of horn and wood. Jimmy Poulsen sparked the process. He has worn glasses since childhood to adjust for nearsightedness. He wanted to upgrade and placed an order with the small eyeglass maker in Pistolstræde in central Copenhagen. Jimmy had some ideas for glasses, but needed to discuss them with maker Rasmus Cold. They ended up at a model with fronts inspired by Piet Hein’s super ellipse. The material is buffalo horn.
Jimmy tells that he is extremely pleased with the result. He likes the shape and the changing hues of the horn frame, and fit is excellent indeed. When he came to pick up the glasses, they found that the frame and side bars needed some addidtional small adjustments, and Rasmus Cold made them immediately.
As always Jimmy was well dressed, when I met him, and I had to take some pictures. It also gives an idea of the context in which the glasses must fit into.
