Pedestrian.TV have just posted an interview with Graz:
Describe the design and product development process – how do you go from original idea to finished product? Where does your design inspiration come from?
First an idea; then a sketch. From that sketch it then goes into the computer. I develop a shape and then apply the appropriate measurements. Because my frames are made by hand they have to be cut from a sheet. So I do a front, top and side view with the specifications and then prepare the data for the factory. My inspiration comes from just about everything I do; everything is linked. How I feel, the work I do, the people who buy my designs – it’s all in the same system.
The other week, I got to try on a couple of pairs of Graz’s sunglasses at Superette in Auckland. They’re definitely on the ever-growing wishlist. …And Good as Gold in Wellington has the pair that’s at the top of that list.
