Over the years, the piena luna or ‘full moon’ has grown into a true classic. These distinctive frames have remained cutting edge. As an ode to this enduring success, theo decided to take a fresh look at this nostalgic design, giving it an upgrade. The result is a beautiful pair of glasses with the same ‘wow-factor’, but now even more comfortable: the luna piena. Two pairs of glasses, each with a different prescription. Ideal for people who simply can’t get used to multifocal lenses and are tired of the accompanying vertigo.

Millenials United

The frames are young, well-balanced and super comfortable. By hollowing out the ultra-strong acetate on the inside, the frames have bold lines, yet remain light. And the thinness of the acetate also encourages the play of light, creating depth in the transparent areas. The beauty of this collection is not just in the form. The acetate and the colours add an extra dimension. The frames combine matte and shiny acetate, different colours and even unexpected textures, such as wood grain. It’s up to the wearer to pick the look that feels just right.

Potatoes acetate – A delicious feast for the eyes

A new twist, an innovative effect. Now the spotlight is on theo’s unique flex-hinge. This time it’s combined with a front piece in acetate. The result: comfortable, well styled frames with a bit of body, that are unexpectedly lightweight, too. The names in this ‘potatoes acetate’ collection have been given an international touch. The models are references to local food cultures from Friesland to Spain. But just like the humble potato, this collection is bound to be a universally popular treat.

“the theo is strong with this one”

eye-witness, a brainteaser!

eye-witness, a brainteaser!

theo likes to look at things from a different perspective. That’s how to spark creativity and keep your outlook fresh. In their everyday work, designers, architects and artists are constantly in contact with the literal version of ‘perspective’ or ‘representing depth in a painting or drawing’. By drawing an object on paper in perspective, you can create an illusion of volume. theo interpreted a drawing of a pair of glasses quite literally, added a whiff of magic, and voilà, the latest eye-witness collection was born. An optical illusion like nothing you’ve ever seen before.

Eye-witness is theo’s playground. For both designer and wearer. Anything goes, no rules, no preconceived notions. That’s why they are not always the easiest frames to make, or to wear. It often starts with a long design process followed by an even longer production process. But that’s the whole challenge: defining and pushing the boundaries. And that’s exactly what the 5 new eye-witness models do.

3D in 2D
Our brains can be tricked to perceive a 2D drawing as a volume. We’re doing the same thing in this eye-witness series. Instead of giving the frames a certain thickness, the volume is created by simply outlining the front and back of the frames in lines, without ‘colouring it in’. Just like in a perspective drawing.

Colours
The 2 contour lines are always in different colours. theo combines a basic colour with its shadow colour. This results in a usually subtle, but occasionally intense contrast. Each model is available in  8 colour combos.

Insight
‘Sight’ happens automatically, but ‘insight’ takes effort. Eye-witness should never be too straightforward.  After all, eye-witness wearers don’t exactly live their lives on automatic pilot.

Kromatics

Our designers, focusing on the possibilities of digging the surface and bringing depth to color, have sought to discover new options and push the limits of the chromatic range.

The result of an immense work of research and innovation, the manufacture of KROMATICS  requires a high technicality and a sharp approach. The transparency of the material makes it possible to infuse breaths, full and delicate, crystalline effects that make the faces vibrate and bring a welcome freshness.

The solid colors, silkscreening in the branches, all contribute to make the concept a concentrate of color, transparency and graphics. The classic motifs such as smoke or tortoiseshell are awakened with unexpected colors. The KROMATICS are furiously pop, inspired by Lichtenstein, Gilbert and George, the modern stained glass, the plexiglass (yes, the plexiglass), and even Buren … without the columns.

Encounter between form and color, these frames will suit optimistic, independent and free personalities, imprinted by assertive culture, loving the sense of detail and always getting up on the right foot.

FORMACOLOR

The FORMACOLOR series , thanks to its combination of materials, is structured by metal and softened by plastic. Added to this are subtle color combinations. It is a chameleon bezel, for all personalities. The lines are pure and gentle, cheerful but chic, the result colorful but subtle. They are fresh and toned frames. This is an identity concept, beyond any reference, which is well suited to those who prefer the bottom to the form, and which are defined rather by the eclecticism of their choices.

The Link Concept

The LINK concept , as a sign of punctuation that would enrich the discourse, is based on the strong idea of nesting: at the link, to the tie are added the contrast of the colors and the transparency and opacity .

The LINK models are all keys to access to a new aesthetic of the bezel. They make resonate the language of the matter, explore the sensuality of the touch, and are particularly adapted to the independent and free personalities. The LINK woman is curious and open, well in her sneakers, centered, and has little more to prove.They are happy mounts, present just what it takes, who know how to adapt and find their place everywhere.
