Here's a pair of glasses with a design pedigree: Warby Parker and the Cooper Hewitt museum collaborated on the limited-edition Cooper frames, available today in Warby Parker stores and online.

The Cooper frames are a contemporary twist on philanthropist Andrew Carnegie's round glasses, whose historic home now houses the Cooper Hewitt.

In addition to the frames, the Warby Parker x Cooper Hewitt collaboration included a month-long course at the museum's Design Center in Harlem. The students came up with social entrepreneurship solutions to problems in their communities, with help from Warby Parker mentors.
