Design Gallery Launches a New Collection from VANNI

Design Gallery Launches a New Collection from VANNI

TANGRAM is an age-old Chinese puzzle made up of a square divided into seven different geometrical shapes, each in one color. The art of the game lies in creating as many complete figures as possible, using combinations of these parts. “A TANGRAM champion is a champion of talent and wisdom”, runs the legend. VANNI’s Tangram glasses add a touch of stylish wisdom to the expression. Made exclusively by the VANNI style center from slab acetate, the Tangram texture is all cubes split into irregular pyramids, alternating against a deep crystalline background which may be see-through or solid in multiple color options. TANGRAM acetate comes in six different block colors, and new for this season the fronts sport combinations of transparent and solid plain color. The color contrasts bring out the overall effect of the material and, seen against the light, generate a kaleidoscope of reflected color – singular eyewear indeed. Style V1982 Colors include Transparent Blue w/Tangram Black/grey; Transparent Red w/Tangram Black/grey; Black w/Tangram Burgundy/Violet Style V1981 Colors include Transparent Blue w/Tangram Black/grey; Transparent Grey w/Tangram Black/grey; Black w/Tangram Green/grey Design...

Most color combinations feature subtly blended gradations while a few offer a more bold color palette. Quetzal is available in three semi-rimless stainless steel shapes and is offered in sizes 51, 53, and 54. All shapes can be fitted with progressive lenses.

Lotus II Blooms Just In Time For Spring

Lotus II Blooms Just In Time For Spring

Sacred in Egypt and respected by Buddhists for thousands of years, the delicate Lotus flower has become an inspiration for Koali. Following in the footsteps of the original Lotus concept which came before, Lotus II expands the family to include slightly different frame front shapes and temples. The soft shape and fluid lines of the lotus flower add visual interest to elegant temples while the base of the flower is produced in openwork to emphasize lightness. The Lotus II concept is offered in a palette of four colors per model. Discreet colors blend harmoniously with lacquer which is applied to the heart of the flower, for a pop of brightness and femininity. Friction-controlled screws prevent opening and swinging of the temple while the inside of the endtips are widened to improve comfort. All models are acetate. Lotus II is available in three shapes all of which are progressive friendly. For more information visit www.morel-france.com

The Art Of Prodesign’s 4th Dimension 4660-62

The Art Of Prodesign’s 4th Dimension 4660-62

Art in layers! The art of making an acetate frame, can seem to easy at times. Behind this special collection lies hours of perfecting the pressing and cutting process. To obtain the 3D effect of the transition between the temple and the front, the acetate material must be cut very precisely so when you bend it, the upperside will still look smooth. The temple itself is a study in cutting and assembling the acetate layers correctly – best seen in the transparent acetate layer which is added last, but is still a seamless part of the entire temple. The color combinations range from exclusive and classic to vibrant and dramatic! Some of these frames are not for the faint hearted! Three shapes, one of them in two sizes, in six colors each. For more information please call us or visit our website at http://prodesigndenmark.com/ US: +1 800 654 6099
