The new Cody Air eyewear collection takes inspiration from the Machine Age and Art Deco Era - a time in history when builders took pride in hand craftsmanship, artisans did not cut corners, things were built to last and designed with passion, pride & quality. Cody Air's aerodynamic, patent pending designs are influenced by the industrial designs of iconic aircraft and automobiles which focused on functionality and symmetry. This streamlined eyewear collection is cut from a single sheet of surgical grade stainless steel with no screws or solder-points. Cody Air embodies super sleek, ultra comfortable and minimal.

The OLIVER Frame

OLIVER: (981-1069) (also known as Eilmer of Malmesbury) was an 11th-century English Benedictine monk best known for his early attempt at a gliding flight using wings. Given the geography of the abbey, his landing site, and the account of his flight, to travel for "more than a furlong" (220 yards, 201 metres) he would have had to have been airborne for about 15 seconds. His exact flightpath is not known, nor how long he was in the air, because today’s abbey is not the abbey of the 11th century, when it was probably smaller, although the tower was probably close to the present height.

BARTOLOMEU: (1451–1500) was a Portuguese explorer and nobleman of the Portuguese royal household. He sailed around the southernmost tip of Africa in 1488, the first European known to have done so. He was a Knight of the royal court, superintendent of the royal warehouses, and sailing-master of the man-of-war, São Cristóvão. King John II of Portugal appointed him on 10 October 1487 to head an expedition to sail around the southern tip of Africa in the hope of finding a trade route to India. Dias was also charged with searching for the lands ruled by Prester John, a fabled Christian priest and ruler.

The DA VINCI Frame

DA VINCI: (1452–1519) was an Italian Renaissance polymath: painter, sculptor, architect, musician, scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, and writer. Da Vinci designed a multitude of mechanical devices, including parachutes, and studied the flight of birds as well as their structure. About 1485 he drew detailed plans for a human-powered ornithopter (a wing-flapping device intended to fly).
