The Nova is named after a transient astronomical event that causes the sudden appearance of a bright new star – and that’s what you’ll feel like wearing these beautifully crafted, cutting-edge frames. Available in two frame colours and with a gradient lens, they’re perfect for your star bound adventures.

  • Built-in flexible micro-hinges to adjust the arms to your head shape
  • CR39 Polarised lenses with exceptional clarity

To mark the 50th anniversary of the moon landing this summer, we’ve designed a limited edition range made from materials that are out of this world.

The more we travel space, the more we see how precious our people and planet are. That’s why every pair of Bird Sunglasses gives the gift of clean solar light through our partnership with SolarAid, replacing dirty kerosene lamps in rural communities in Africa. Our hope is that when you wear these frames, just like an astronaut looking down from space, you’ll have a Bird’s eye view on our beautiful planet. Come join our flock.

Perfected for adventure

Utilising aerospace technology has allowed us to create frames with one of the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any metal. Our Satellite frames all weigh less then 20 grams, so you won't even notice you are wearing them.

Modern, Minimal Design


Our frames are created for both the modern professional and the adventurous, incorporating elements of classic yet minimal design to create a pair of glasses that are perfect for every-day use and will last you a lifetime.

Share your sun

Every pair sold brings the gift of clean and safe light to a family in central Africa through our Share Your Sun partnership with SolarAid.

598 million people in Africa alone have no access to electricity. Without electricity families have no clean source of light, leaving millions to rely on expensive and dangerous alternatives. With a solar light, everything changes. These little lamps are safe, clean and affordable. They give off hours of light in the evening so families can earn, learn and feel safe after dark. Just one lamp can transform the fortunes of an entire family and is the first step on an energy ladder to full electrification.

For each lamp this equates to:

  • 4 people reached
  • £145 saved in not having to buy fuel
  • 1006 hours of extra study time for students and children
  • 1.1 tonnes of CO2 emissions averted
  • 2 people experiencing better health
