Contrasts bring excitement to an idea and give a minimalistic shape ingenuity. If a design is focused on clear colors and surfaces, an outline with contrasts shows to better advantage.
Lunor relies on exactly this effect with its new line A13. The new frames made of highly polished acetate consist of a two-layer acetate sheet, where deep black acetate meets another color. The highlight: The black acetate sheet is precisely removed by hand so that the individual layers appear embossed and the fine color contrast shows to advantage – a new dimension of puristic spectacle design.
With its A13 line, Lunor goes one step further in acetate design: Not only two layers join together here but they also create an exciting contrast by playing with the outline. By removing the upper black layer, a two-color effect is created that strikes the eye. The A13 is available in square and anatomic. In each model, clear black is combined with different havana shades or transparent crystals. The covering-up with the black sheet gives a strong rim around the eyes that underline the brow area of the wearer.
Another innovation of the frame is the hinge specially developed for the A13 by Lunor. Based on the characteristic Lunor double hinge, a sophisticated arrow shape is used. Fine arrows show as subtle eyecatchers at the transition from frame to temple – in characteristic Lunor style, unique shapes, perfect functions, and highest quality are combined.
Lunor AG is appreciated by spectacles aficionados as a manufacturer of quality. In this, understatement not only characterizes the design of the brand but is also the unspoken mission statement of the company. As a highly specialized glasses manufacturer with an extensive range, Lunor has been producing German-made vintage glasses for over 25 years, gaining international appreciation in the process.
Stars such as Daniel Craig, Johnny Depp, Meg Ryan, and Uma Thurman have all been seen in their Lunor glasses. Apple founder Steve Jobs was also a big fan of the German premium brand. The rimless glasses that he wore without fail for 14 years originated with Lunor, advancing from a niche model to achieve cult status.
The collection also includes antique-looking metal rims, titanium frames, sunglasses, and a broad range of acetate frames in retro design. The creation of each frame requires up to 200 individual steps. This attention to detail is appreciated worldwide. Markets with the strongest sales include the US, South Korea, France, and Japan.
