Morel releases Delta 1A from Lightec

Morel releases Delta 1A from Lightec

Delta 1A: pure and striking Lightec offers three striking men’s models where the focus is on purity. Frames are fitted with a new hinge known as Delta. Even more discreet than the Alpha hinge, Delta has no screws or center line and contains a blade which acts as a spring. The hinge is simply held in place by a hook which is visible on the temple in the form of a small contrasting line. In addition to its esthetic appearance, Delta improves wearer comfort and shape. The three striking, ultra-light eyeshapes are finely worked to produce these slim frames. Delta 1A offers three dual-material stainless steel/acetate models featuring innovative construction techniques. The 2.8mm acetate front is clipped onto a 0.8mm colored stainless steel structure, revealing a subtle line of color that continues onto the temple designed along the same principle. The result is pure and offers the consumer a striking frame with a clearly defined visual appearance and unprecedented slimness and lightness. Deep, rectangular and caravan shapes are all available, with a colored line to highlight the shape. A highly successful interplay of colors is used to create a distinctive, ultra-light...

Tanger: The Ultimate In Functional Design

Tanger: The Ultimate In Functional Design

Streamlined, fluid and functional, Öga’s Tanger combines creativity with high-tech materials resulting in a light, comfortable frame. Tanger’s flex system is an audacious mechanical setup where each component has an impact on the appearance of the temple. The double-action flex system uses a visible stainless steel blade to form an integral part of the temple’s aesthetic. This spring blade slides inside the anodized curved aluminum temple creating a light and colorful effect. The front and temple are connected by a hook and stainless steel dowel pin inserted into the temple. The non-visible axis prevents any friction with the aluminum and guarantees exceptional durability. Tanger is available in a palette of refined colors. A brushed, matte anodized aluminum finish is combined with a line in bright tone to create bold contrasts of texture, color and material. Available in 10 models (2 US specific models for later release), Tanger is a complete offering of product: four semi-rimless shapes, three full-rimmed stainless steel topbars and three brushed acetate fronts available in a range of sizes from 53 through 55 and 57. All versions are progressive friendly. Öga is a brand for...

Morel releases a follow-up to Koali’s original Chloris concept.

Morel releases a follow-up to Koali’s original Chloris concept.

This release of Chloris features stainless steel fronts highlighted by an acetate browbar offering a unique, dynamic look to the design of the frame. Inspired by the movement made by the tangle of small fibers found at the end of the Chloris grass, this transparent acetate concept is based on the effects of light and depth. With the help of Mazzucchelli, we have created a material made up of acetate strands, in opaque colors, that are embedded in a translucent colored base. Playful fronts dance with light as the strands echo the movement of Chloris as it sways in a warm breeze. Chloris II is fitted with thin temples and a flex-hinge. This unique product is driven by color and material both evoking the fluidity and delicacy of this tropical grass. Chloris II is available in a palette of five exclusive colors for each of the three available models ranging from red, pink and purple to green, grey, black, brown, and blue. With Chloris, material and color drive the design. Please visit www.morel-france.com

Tråd: Highly Original Design!

Tråd: Highly Original Design!

Morel elaborates on Öga’s philosophy of combining design with function with six new additions to the Tråd concept with a patented flex-hinge system which is both bold and visually simplistic. Limited Edition Tråd models were previously released at Vision Expo West 2014. These models featured a dowel pin on the frame’s front to hold the Morel’s patented flex-hinge system in place exhibiting Trad’s functional design. This release of Tråd features the same flex-hinge system which has been adapted to no longer play a role in the frame’s front. The flex-hinge is made of a 1.4mm stainless steel wire folded into a clip which connects the front with the temple via the endpiece. The hinge fulfills an integral part of the frame’s appeal, giving it an intriguing personality. Tråd is available in a masculine color palette and offers three semi-rimless stainless steel models, two full-rimmed titanium models, and one full-rimmed acetate model.

Avlang: Volume, Robustness, and Lightness

Avlang: Volume, Robustness, and Lightness

Öga’s Avlang, meaning “oblong” in Swedish and Norwegian, is designed revolving around a fine-walled, stainless steel 4mm tube combining robustness and lightness. The Avlang concept was inspired by the modern cylindrical architectural style from the Art Deco period of the 1930’s known as, Streamline Moderne. This particular style of architecture is echoed in Avlang’s fluid lines. Avlang features an exclusive double-flex screwless hinge whose mechanism is an integral part of the identically designed endpiece. A die-cast colored section at the joint of the endpiece and the temple provides a touch of color. Avlang is offered in seven metal models; three semi-rimless, four full-rimmed. Look forward to more from Avlang in Spring 2015! For more information visit www.morel-france.com

Aega: Playing With Color

Aega: Playing With Color

The iridescent blue shades of the Morpho Aega, a butterfly found on the continent of South America, were the inspiration behind Morel’s Aega concept for the Koali collection. The presence of the Aega is omnipresent in every aspect of the frame. The grace of the butterfly is expressed in the overall style of the frame from the contemporary eye shapes, to the delicately thought-out temple, and a concealed fl exhinge system. Aluminum gives this work three dimensions with a twist to refl ect the triangular wings of the butterfly which is emphasized by a contrasting line as a reminder of Aega’s shape. Metallic tones use light to mimic the shades of the tiny glittering scales which cover Aega’s wings. While blue is the color most closely associated with Aega (blue butterflies are male), all the colors are used to create unrivaled harmonies with radiant hues as well as pastels for brilliant combinations of color. Aega is available in four stainless steel models (three semi-rimless, two full rimmed) and two models with double-layered handcrafted acetate fronts. For more information visit www.morel-france.com
