Design is important to us at Roope Vintage and is evident in our collection of vintage and reproduction glasses and sunglasses.  Design also runs in the Roope family.

London design group Hulger has won awards for its eco friendly light bulb, Plumen. The world’s first designer low-energy light bulb was co-designed by Nicholas Roope, son of Robert Roope.  Here he is wearing fab retro Anglo American Princeton glasses while demonstrating the versitility of the Plumen!
