For the sixth annual AZ Awards, our intrepid jury narrowed the field from over 800 submissions, received from dozens of countries, to select just 48 finalists that stood above the rest. In addition to presenting the AZ Award winners, Azure recognized these projects, products and concepts with Awards of Merit.

These glasses aren’t just about seeing – they’re about being seen. The base frame is made from durable transparent resin, but the customizable white nylon spectacles make each piece unique. Do you want glasses that resemble multi­coloured orbs? Angels’ wings? Prehistoric runes? Thanks to 3-D printing, anything is possible. Each piece snaps into the base frame, and snaps off just as easily. When you’re ready to switch up your look, just print off a new pair.
