Capsule Eyewear CollectionView text
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.
They include: the use of ultra-lightweight Optyl (an exclusive Safilo patent), advanced UFO technology; the use of aluminium; and, lastly, steel integrated with the new revolutionary Elasta 80 hinge.
“It was a privilege to collaborate with the most respected eyewear manufacturer in the world; to honour the ethos of Safilo and reflect it in my design. It is always important for me to understand and explore the heritage of the company I am working with. Equally, I like to exploit new technologies and materials in the design process and inject some of my own DNA into it.”
