Clématis 2: a symphony of color

Clématis 2: a symphony of color

The movement of plant life continues to inspire this Koali concept known as Clématis with a follow-up release featuring two-tone (inside/outside) stainless steel fronts. Clématis is based on the effects of movement, depth and texture using exclusive acetate developed by Morel for Koali in partnership with Mazzucchelli. The material is produced in blocks to combine intensity and visual lightness. Created using a complex manufacturing process, the material is made up of three different textures and densities that ripple randomly through a translucent colored base, evoking the delicate pattern at the center of the Clématis flower. Fitted with slim temples, the frames come with an exclusive micro-fused flex-hinge in the form of a “K.” The uniqueness of this product is derived from the colors created from different shades of the same color or in some cases three different colors. Clématis 2 is available in three models in a palette of eight exclusive colors: purple, violet, plum, wine, brown, blue, teal, and grey. With Clématis, material and color drive the design.

Chloris 3 from Koali!

Chloris 3 from Koali!

Morel releases a refreshing version of Chloris! 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. Chloris III features the same custom designed Mazzucchelli acetate on the top portion of the frame’s front. The acetate is made up strands, in opaque colors, which are embedded in a translucent colored base. The bottom half of the front transitions into single colored translucent acetate for a split effect. Chloris III 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 III is available in a palette of six exclusive colors for each of the four available models ranging in an array of colors: black, crystal, blue, red, turquoise, violet, green, brown and yellow. With Chloris, material and color drive the design.

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.

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.
