ØRGREEN // TITANIUM TRIBE
Ørgreen Optics introduces its latest collection of titanium eyewear for both men and women. Entitled Titanium Tribe, each of the collection’s five styles is named after some of the oldest Native American tribal communities of North America. Paying homage to the strength, pride, and perseverance of tribal peoples through history, Titanium Tribe is a collection of durable, high quality optical frames.
The collection continues Ørgreen’s engagement with Japanese titanium. This collection sees the addition of a distinctive new feature in the form of frames with rounded edges for both men and women. As opposed to past titanium styles, the edges of these frames have been rounded with a milling head for a softer, smoother look, a feature usually only found in acetate frames. This additional step of production – executed by hand in Ørgreen’s factories in Japan – softens the overall expression, and adds a level of surprise in the clash between form, hardness, and surface.
Celebrating the rich colour pallet found in indigenous North American culture and way of dressing, the collection features a mix of earthy contemporary colour nuances such as Chocolate, Spanish Brown and Coffee Black, but complimented with edgier, more full-bodied hues such as Rio Red, Grape Juice, and Misty Rose. With a broad stylistic appeal – from bold, inviting yellow to the elegant and subdued Cloud Cream – this range of monochrome and two-tone colour stories caters for many moods and expressions, but is generally characterized by a spirit of optimistic minimalism. This approach stays true to Ørgreen’s long-time trademark across their work in titanium, polyamide and acetate eyewear: combining the aesthetics and traditions of craftsmanship from Scandinavia and Japan.
