This week's Frame Friday post is featuring an amazing new line of frames at The Eye Co. called OVVO Optics.
OVVO Optics has been present in the U.S. since March 2011. Its history, however, goes back to Europe of the Cold War era. That’s when a group of scientists, who were working on developing a material for spacecraft and military use, fused surgical steel and titanium, achieving an exceptionally light, durable and flexible material that is also hypoallergenic. Inspired by its remarkable qualities, in 1980 the engineers of the company started using this unique composite to make frames for glasses. They are handmade, but manufactured with outstanding precision. Entirely produced in Germany and Poland, OVVO frames bring exquisite European style and unmatched quality.
Weighing barely 0.6 ounces, OVVO frames offer unparalleled comfort and unfailing durability. Tests showed that stretched flat frames can hold up to 90 pounds without breaking or wrecking. Virtually indestructible and highly flexible is also OVVO Optics' patented screw-free hinge that can withstand more than 300,000 rotations (an equivalent of 205 years of usage) and reveal no changes in structure or appearance.
OVVO Optics’ eyewear is 100% manufactured in family-owned plants in Europe, where each frame goes through 65-85 steps before it is complete. First, using German engineered laser technology the frames are cut out from raw steel sheets imported from Sweden. Then they pass through the various stages of hand-manufacturing. With great precision and attention to detail, the frames are hand-polished, painted, decorated and assembled by a crew of 250 dedicated eyewear production experts. At each phase, they are inspected with care for highest quality assurance.
The end product is a flawless piece of art... sophisticated, comfortable, durable and flexible.
