BERN - GOGGLES
Eastwood Snow Goggles
Innovation for Performance and Sustainability
Innovation is the norm at Bern Unlimited; they were the very in the industry to create one helmet for multiple seasons. Now, in partnership with Lifestyledesign, they have introduced the first eco-friendly material to the world of sports goggles - PlusFoam. The design challenge was to re-imagine fundamental goggle construction to fully realize the intrinsic benefits of PlusFoam.
As an outgrowth of our expertise in eyewear design and our passion for sustainable materials, Lifestyledesign approached Bern with the idea of utilizing PlusFoam as a key component in a ski goggle, as well as proposing a concept for improving the overall structural integrity of the goggle.
Advanced, super soft, lightweight, and breathable PlusFoam is the first sustainable material to be introduced in the goggle market. Lifestyledesign’s structural redesign ensures that the goggle materials can be separated in compliance with global sustainability guidelines.
INDUSTRIAL DESIGN I CMF
A NEW CATEGORY OF SUSTAINABLE SNOW GOGGLES
PlusFoam is an amazing material but can be difficult to manufacture as a complex molded part. In addition, a critical aspect of the development process was to analyze, understand and design the complex facial contact areas of the goggles. The results speak for themselves - a goggle that is lightweight, highly impact resistant, breathable, fits snugly and presents a solution that is sustainable and recyclable.

In addition to the performance benefits, PlusFoam is made without any manufacturing waste and is 100 percent recyclable.
