To celebrate its 80-year history, the capsule collection ‘Safilo by Marc Newson’ stems from revisiting a historical model personally chosen by Marc and which led to the creation of 5 different variations, through 5 specific materials and technologies, based on the original shape from the Safilo’s archive.

Respecting a precise chronological order that retraces the most important milestones and achievements of the brand’s 80 years of history, each of the five models is characterised by unique features and avant-garde technologies that connote the qualities of the brand. They include: the use of ultra-lightweight Optyl (an exclusive Safilo patent) - whether used individually or combined with the new revolutionary Elasta 80 hinge; the application of the advanced UFO technology; the use of aluminium; and, lastly, steel integrated with the new hinge.
