History of Sunglasses & History of Peeq
Although invented thousands of years ago, the sunglasses market is broken. Sunglasses are now the world's most popular accessory, protecting people's eyes everywhere. Currently more than a billion pairs of sunglasses are sold every year representing $15-Billion. Yet the market is dominated by a few companies who control 100 brands and 80% of the market. In part due to that reason, sunglasses have seen minimal innovation over the years.
Enter Peeq, the inventor of the world's first ever reversible sunglasses. Peeq has spent years researching and developing the first reversible sunglasses. Peeq has a group of engineers who have innovated the utility of having flippable sunglasses with totally different designs on each side. Peeq has patented its technology. When you buy a pair of Peeq glasses, you are truly getting two pairs in one.

Evolution Of Sunglasses
Sunglasses have been around for centuries. But the industry lacks innovation. Chances are, the same sunglasses you're wearing today are similar to those worn by your grandparents. Enter Peeq: Peeq invented and patented the world's first ever reversible glasses.
Inventor of Reversible Glasses - Peeq Patent
Rafael "Raffi" Holzer was attending UPenn (MSc. Engineering) when he came up with the idea for 2-in-1 reversible glasses. Seen here, Raffi is wearing an early prototype of Peeq sunglasses. Today, Peeq owns the patent on reversible glasses and glasses of any kind. Utility patent.
Five Years of Research & Development
From concept to a finished product, Peeq began with rudimentary engineering drawings. Over the past 5 years, Peeq engineers have focused on optimizing functionality combined with form, so that Peeq sunglasses offer the reversible two-pairs-in-one feature, but simultaneously offer the most luxurious and durable materials on the eyewear market.
Peeq In The Media
Shortly after coming up with the invention, Peeq received media coverage in Business Insider. Rafael Holzer, Peeq's inventor, was quoted as saying, "I'm a mechanical guy and I'm thinking, 'There's got to be a way to flip [glasses] around and have the design on either side'..."
