EYE FASHION AND PANTO
In the 1920’s in UK the Panto shape of glasses were introduced. The models were fine metal designs, either in silver- or golden-color. The metal frame was typically framed by a thin ring of acetate, often described as a plastic ring.
These round glasses were not circular, but carefully designed by combining 6 different radii to a shape that perfectly frames the eye. Studying the anatomy of the skull, the eye is positioned in the cavity called the orbit. Orbita has more or less the same shape as a true panto design. This makes this the panto shape the perfect frame of the eye, which is a major reason why panto glasses seems to fit the face of 80% of all users that try them on(!)
The slightly flatted top of a panto aligns perfectly to the eyebrows, which also is a perfect natural match.
