A product design firm and durable goods production and logistics outfit, AARN is the diversified activity of Aaron Panone, self-producing designer and engineer. House brands include: AARN (custom product), AARN EYEWEAR (handmade acetate eyewear design and manufacturing), and AARN TRANSMISSION (bicycle parts design and production).
The first evidence of a series in handmade acetate eyewear design and manufacturing. All processes completed in-house. Crude, but a good first step. Project is ongoing. One unit produced from vintage Mazzuchelli tortoise shell acetate, fit with custom 6-base CR-39 gray plano lenses. More details to come.
