Six drummers participate in a well planned musical attack in the suburbs. As an elderly couple leave their apartment the drummers take over. On everyday objects they give a concert in four movements: Kitchen, Bedroom, Bathroom and Livingroom.

In February of 2002 the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors in California adopted a proclamation, conceived and written by Gary Freiberg, declaring August 12th as Vinyl Record Day in San Luis Obispo County. The date recognizes when Edison invented the phonograph in 1877.
Vinylize began because we wanted to make eyewear on a recyclable basis. We experimented by making old vinyl records into frames. The process has been refined over a number of years into a stylish and sophisticated product.
Some vinyl is valuable because of the content but not all and it's those unwanted vinyl records that instead of just being thrown into landfill we remake into unique and very wearable eyewear.
Today we still make our frames by hand in our Budapest workshop using the methods we developed more than 10 years ago.
Vinylize frames are made unique by the vinyl record veneer that graces the front of the frame.
At Vinylize we believe that music has the power to transcend borders and open minds. We believe that no other company fuses style, music and recycling more perfectly than Vinylize.
Vinylize is hand made by Tipton Eyeworks in Budapest Hungary.
Everybody should do as much as they can to reduce, reuse and recycle.
Besides the standard duties of recycling paper, metal, glass and plastic, Vinylize also:
- Re-uses old shipping boxes whenever possible
- Ensures packing material such as Styrofoam puffs and bubble foil is reused.
- Has a ‘paperless office’ policy.
- Obviously transforms vinyl into unique and stylish eyewear as well as cases and stands
We have our own special method of joining vinyl with cellulose acetate which took many years of trial and error to perfect. An example of which you can see detailed in this photo.
Our frames are all stamped with our guaranteed "Handmade in Hungary" trademark.
European styled and made with our personal two year warranty.
All our cases are handmade by sewing a zipper onto a 7" single and folding it in half.
