Redditor Alan Brendan made this enormous eyeglasses sculpture for his wife's optometry office. They advertise the company's services while protecting desk workers from airborne viral infections.
It's an impressive piece of craftsmanship. Brendan describes the process:
After measuring the front desk carefully I created it in Illustrator and sent the lenses and temple detail to a local sign maker to custom cut. I cut the rest of the frame from a piece of half-inch plywood, glued it up and spray painted it black. It honestly took a lot less time than I expected and I’m really happy with the results. We wanted to bring a little bit of fun to this very not fun situation.
I was going to order square panels to hang in front of the reception desk, but recognized that two panels = glasses. The safety measures that we were putting in place in the office were becoming overwhelming—so many new procedures, barriers, masks, and cleaning supplies. We felt like doing something fun—both for us and something that might lighten the mood of someone walking through the front door.
It probably cost about four times the price of square panels, but was totally worth it.
