Come and view our great range of Jono Hennessy fashion eyewear at Insight Optometrists, including limited editions of his iconic Australian designs.
Jonathan (Jono) Hennessy Sceats was inspired by his father, Filmer Sceats, who was a well regarded Australian optometrist. Watching his father test and fit his clients with eyeglasses, Jono saw how his father created bespoke frames through the use of brightly coloured materials carefully chosen for each individual. These small works of art led to Jono’s love of craft and creation, resulting in his becoming the well known Australian Designer of Optical frames and sunglasses.
Producing signature frames under his own label, Jonathan Sceats, Jono shook up the industry with his colourful and unusual designs. At first slightly ahead of their time, they were quickly picked up and featured in Vogue magazine, setting trends and selling over one million frames.
He has since taken Australian eyewear designs to more than 20 countries, spreading his passion for change, innovation and craftmanship. Jono’s contemporary designs often reflect Australia’s surf culture; sunshine, beaches and parties, though he is known for his originality and bold experimentation with themes and colours.
