A late summer day at the beach, the days become shorter, a never-ending summer; warm memories, a feeling of lightness. Was everything better before?
We design our collections with an affectionate look at our own past: personal and authentic.
When designing our collections, we follow a completely reductionist and almost architectural approach by highlighting the function of a pair of glasses: to simply be a frame for the lenses. Since the very beginning, we found that reproducing the classic approach to creating eyewear – carving out small shapes from large sheets of flat material - in our digital work environment just wasn’t us.
Optical glass is at the center of our digital workspace; this is how we generate our frames, not as a two-dimensional extruded surface, but as a spatial structure around the functional core of eyewear: the lens. Since 2016, we have combined pioneering technologies, traditional manufacturing methods and our experience from over 20 years in the eyewear industry to create distinctive and sustainably produced design icons:
The look of yesterday in the technology of tomorrow.

Weightlessness and Balance
Less isn't always more. Our glasses are among the lightest on the market, but that alone is not enough for us. We believe that only a harmonious balance of components, the clever combination of material and design, can deliver the perfect wearing experience.
We have built a platform of compatible components across collections, where both different sizes and colors can be interchanged. Easily adjustable temples in different lengths and exchangeable nose pads afford optimal customization of our modular glasses.
Material of the Gods
When scientists discovered the element Titanium in the late eighteenth century and contemplated its unusual qualities, they named it after the Greek gods, known as Titans. Still to this day, the unique combination of lightness and resistance is astounding; Titanium is corrosion-resistant, biocompatible and therefore the perfect material for our glasses in all variations.
Microscopic Building Blocks
It's almost too good to be true: consuming just enough, working with only that which is really needed. No overproduction, precise and greatly reduced consumption of material and energy, that is economic and sustainable at the same time.
A few years ago, the 3D printing process “SLS” was still a relatively exotic manufacturing method, but to date it has proven to be a resource-saving process to produce unique materials with unmistakably high-quality appearances.
Together with our technology partners, we raise the quality of the material to a completely new level.
Flexibility and Resilience
For us, sintered polyamide is the ideal counterpart to Beta Titanium; both materials are lightweight, elastic, durable and highly adaptable. The ingenious interplay of geometry and material afford our eyewear amazing weightlessness and simultaneous resistance to the elements we face everyday.
