Combining design with function is the philosophy of the ÖGA brand. ÖGA’s Limited Edition Trad concept is an acetate frame equipped with a patented flex system which is both bold and visually simplistic. Trad’s outstanding design combines aesthetic appeal with mechanical function. The flex-hinge is made of a 1.4mm stainless steel wire folded into a clip which connects the front with the temple.
