Cabinet 10, Drawer 9
The John Barr Collection.
For many years John has supplied us with prototypes we requested; like the reproductions from the Udo Proksch designs; as well as his own designs and ideas in prototype form. Sometimes they are basic and sometimes they are way out. Like the famous Pierre Marly, who made mainly One Of A Kind frames for discerning clients, John is also a master designer and craftsman, whose work we believe will be of great value in the future.
Drawer 9 are all John Barr - a mix of optical design prototypes - vintage inspired with different finishes. They can all go straight into an eyewear company's collection - they are one of a kind prototypes and would not be here if they had ever been used in any commercial collection.
US$ 300 EACH.
