During the Olympic Games in July and August 2012, the California headquartered sports fashion label provided lounge and interactive design experiences at the Oakley Safehouse which was built inside the London Design Museum. At the Oakley Safehouse, athletes customized their individual eyewear from models such as the RadarLock glasses at the interactive design bar.
