Ray-Ban Stories – the smart glasses from EssilorLuxottica and Meta – has been awarded at two of the world’s most renowned design competitions: the iF Design Award and Red Dot Design Award.
Ray-Ban Stories won two different prizes at iF Design Award 2022: the Design Award in the User Experience discipline, and The Gold Award in the Product discipline, which is the highest recognition in the competition. This year, a record number of 10,776 projects were registered for the iF Design Award. Less than 1% of all submissions received the Gold Award.
Ray-Ban Stories was awarded in the product design category for the 2022 edition of the Red Dot Design Awards, winning the highest award in the competition, the Red Dot: Best of the Best. This prize is reserved for the best products in a category, the ones which stand out for groundbreaking design.
Ray-Ban Stories let wearers capture, share and listen as they move through the world. They feature dual integrated 5MP cameras to take photos and videos; discreet open-ear speakers for audio, and a three-microphone audio array to deliver rich voice and sound quality for calls and videos.
Ray-Ban Stories work with a companion app, Facebook View (iOS and Android), which allows people to import and edit content captured on the smart glasses and share it to any social app stored on their phone. The portfolio features 28 style, colour and lens variations including the iconic Wayfarer, along with the Round and Meteor styles.
