Jono Hennessy designer eyewear is often regarded as the world-class leader in innovative glasses. The idea for this infamous brand of designer glasses came about during the 1980s. Jono Hennessy Sceats grew up watching his father, C.H. Filmer Sceats, an artistic optometrist, have a loving and intense passion for developing efficient and stylish eyewear. Jono Hennessy carried this same methodical passion throughout his life, and after visiting the Yellow House art gallery in Sydney, he quickly realized his true calling and enrolled in art school. After art school, Jono used an inherited pair of eye frames from the 1950s as a source of inspiration for his work and soon designed his own line of signature frames.
