Design a Japanese Hinge for Sunglasses

Contest Brief

UPDATE 3: It does not have to be Japanese. I think this is too restrictive because the quality of entries is not what I was expecting. Come up with an original design that is aesthetically pleasing and FUNCTIONAL. Look at Persol Sunglasses’ Hinge for inspiration for both functionality and aesthetics. Thank you?

UPDATE 2: Please upload your design on the model I have uploaded as a reference. In place of the Hinge Design I have currently. Please don't upload a plain design that isn't placed on the sunglasses. These will be disregarded.

UPDATE: Please check the reference, the hinge (the Gold Ankh/Egyptian Key of Life) I currently have is functional as well as aesthetically pleasing. The Japanese replacement should be similar to that. So Japanese words/phrases won’t be good enough.

I want someone creative to come up with a design that I can use in place of this Egyptian Key of Life. Look at the reference, this is the current design. Draw up your own creation in place of that gold design I have currently.

I want it to represent Japanese Culture, therefore the design should have some meaning behind it (Please explain the meaning behind your chosen design) while simultaneously being aesthetically pleasing and retaining its essential functionality as a hinge for Sunglasses.

      It is not functional my friend. It has to look good but at the same time be functional. Look at the second reference I put up

    It is also possible to create a design that symbolizes the name of the manufacturer using the first letter of the company's name if you like the suggestion please tell me the name of the company

    Please check the reference I put up. The Persol Reference is simple, functional AND creative. That is what I want please. The entries are neither simple nor functional

      Oooo, you wanted the design to be used as a hinge?
      I completely misunderstood the issue, my fault.
      I will produce a suitable design...

      Vaibhav P: I asked for a Japanese design but that seems difficult to have it simple, functional and aesthetically appealing. That’s why I now opened up for new designs that aren’t necessarily related

      Whichever you’re comfortable with. The important think is that it has to be simple. Not complicated.

    Please guys, it has to look good but at the same time it has to be FUNCTIONAL. Almost all entries aren’t functional as a hinge
