Maison Jean-François Rey
Eyewear, French design

Jean-François Rey is a French designer who revolutionized the world of eyewear in the 1980s by imposing a new and offbeat style. Both director and owner of BLI-DBP, the company he founded in 1995, he is above all a designer renowned for his inimitable creativity and his innovative approach of the design, both modern and respecting the French Eyewear tradition. For 30 years, his optical and solar models have been dressing the men and women faces with style and elegance.

Originally from Jura, the birthplace of French eyewear manufacture, Jean-François Rey has rapidly imposed his own stylistic signature in the 80s in Paris where he designed solar collections for ready-to-wear brands. Always following his instinct and his passion for the eyewear design, he decides to launch his own collections in Marseille (south of France) forming a complementary and creative duo with his wife Joëlle, Artistic Director. With the designers’ team, he imagines the J.F. Rey glasses and work on the French design revival. Like an experimental laboratory, the JF Rey Studio continuously moves away from the beaten tracks, dares to take risks and to break down the traditional codes. Being permanently aware of the latest trends, he explores new technologies and new materials that lead to exceptional pieces. His very particular way of working the shapes, volumes, materials and colours combinations have opened up new possibilities in eyewear design.

The collections are distinguished by a differentiating design, a distinctive colour signature, an innovative work on materials and outstanding combinations that make each model stands out from the crowd. Each frames is a unique piece and confirms the designer’s position as a driving force of the international eyewear market. Top-graded materials, flattering fits, mastered silhouettes and duality of styles: the CarbonWood line returns to the 2019 collections with 4 new men’s shapes that brilliantly combine natural wood, carbon fibers with metal. An exceptional design.

CARBONWOOD
CarbonWood is a line of high-end optical frames which subtly mixes retro codes with a very contemporary design. Launched about a year ago, it is enriched today with 4 new masculine models that are crafted from the finest materials and the best techniques playing contrasted and sophisticated associations of styles and colors.

The exceptional technicality and aesthetics of the models are the result of the superimposition of extremely thin carbon fibers with natural wood essences carefully selected for their original beauty and subtle color schemes that offer many creative possibilities. The natural hues of wenge, sental wood or cedar combined with the electric colors of carbon give the collection its strong graphic entity. The texture and relief effects revealed on the fronts highlight the simplicity of the shapes and bring character and refinement. The metal is used in a sleek minimalist style with a very urban spirit. FLEX hinge, impeccable finishes, extreme lightness, fine matte polishing and neat stylistic details: everything here is worked for the sake of refined luxury.
