we explore materials, manufacturing technologies, and craftsmanship techniques for designs that look and feel perfect.
Our Paper-Thin Titanium frames are made with 0.6mm thick Beta Titanium 153,
and combine the lightness and strength of Titanium with the utmost flexibility.
R 1000 + TITANIUM
Our latest series represents our philosophy of purpose and technical precision with the thinnest plastic frames yet. R 1000 + Titanium is a combination of a R 1000 front, a light, flexible, and resilient plastic resin, with our Beta Titanium 153 temples. All bound together by an innovative screwless hinge.
METAL CORE ACETATE
Technologically advanced CNC (Computer Numerical Control) Machining precisely creates the housing inside the front acetate layers for the laser-cut stainless steel insert. The result is one of the thinnest and most resilient acetate frames available
Block Titanium is a timeless category with minimalist design, manufactured from mono-block titanium material without soldering points. Our latest frames have an added color inlay, accentuating Block Titanium’s clean lines.
