ØRGREEN // QUANTUM SUN COLLECTION AUTUMN 2018
Following the global success of the Quantum Collection 1.0 and 2.0, Ørgreen Optics is about to launch Quantum Sun, the first assortment of Sunwear from its Quantum collection, merging technical innovation and hand-crafted design in bespoke eyewear.
Quantum is Ørgreen’s innovative range of frames that, uniquely, employ a spherical hinge to connect the titanium temple to the polyamide front, effectively eliminating extraneous components in eyewear design such as screws and bolts. Combined with Ørgreen’s trademark material – Japanese titanium – and a bespoke range of color stories, Quantum embodies Ørgreen’s goal to challenge the traditions of eyewear design whilst offering the highest hand-crafted quality to its customers.
Quantum Sun consists of five unisex, male and female styles, three of which sees some of Ørgreen’s most iconic optical Quantum styles translated into sunwear for the first time. In addition, two new original styles – one female, one unisex – are presented, taking a strong inspiration from the grandiose eyewear of the 1970s. Featuring oversized square lenses framed by dramatic straight lines, the styles offer protection from the sun well beyond the eyebrows and cheeks, procuring a glamorous, retro look.
Available in an exciting range of original two-tone color stories, Ørgreen’s distinct materiality and emphasis on cleanliness adds a modern touch to the vintage design elements. As an exciting addition, the Quantum Sun collection will feature exclusively crafted cases fitted uniquely for the two new original styles, available to order on demand. Staying true to the ethos of Ørgreen, Quantum Sun is a collection that elegantly pairs innovation with classicism, simplicity with sophistication in new and thrilling ways.
