ProDesign Presents 4th Dimension 4131-32

ProDesign Presents 4th Dimension 4131-32

Daring and creative expression! With this collection the designer wanted to work with thin material and make a dynamic and playful design. By bending and folding the metal the designer has added volume to such thin metal, in that way it appears more bulky. The choices of colors are interesting and the shapes are refreshing. The frame is a mix between metal fronts, temples with dimensions and speed, and acetate end-tips in contrasting colors in two tones. No two end-tips are alike – the color scheme is very vibrant which gives an exciting flow between the front and the temples. 2 shapes, 1 feminine, 1 masculine, 4-5 colors each. All suitable for progressive lenses. For more information please call us or visit our website at http://prodesigndenmark.com/ US: +1 800 654 6099

4th Dimension Takes You Back In Time With A Modern Flair

4th Dimension Takes You Back In Time With A Modern Flair

Simply feminine retro! The retro-wave continues strongly into the fall/winter season of 2013. Where the retro frames used to be very chunky, with thick, heavy temples, ProDesign have created a light and more sophisticated collection, still with that unmistakable feel of the 60’s and 70’s, but twisted in a direction towards the more simple and “intelligent” look. We’ve kept the front colors very subtle and classic, many with a two-tone color combination of dark acetate at the top and a lighter shade at the bottom. As a surprising twist we’ve added a beautiful layer of pearly pastel acetate on the inside, to emphasize the feminine style. What takes the collection in an even more feminine direction are the diamond-shaped rivets placed on the front of the frames and the beautiful wavy look of the hinge area. Four shapes, two feminine and two unisex. All in four colors each. For more information please call us or visit our website at http://prodesigndenmark.com/

These Aren’t Your Father’s Eyeglasses

The retro-wave continues strongly into the fall/winter season of 2013. Where the retro frames used to be very chunky, with thick, heavy temples, ProDesign has created a light and more sophisticated collection, still with that unmistakable feel of the 60’s and 70’s, but twisted in a direction towards the more simple and “intelligent” look. We’ve kept the front colors very subtle and quite masculine; some of the frames are made from 3 layers, choosing a thicker layer in the middle for a layer of more intense color. This breaks with the classic retro look as well as the conventional way of layering acetate, giving the collection that little unexpected twist that makes it stand apart from the rest. The distinct male look of the collection is emphasized by the subtle details of the square rivets placed on both the front and temples Six shapes, two feminine, one masculine and three unisex. All in six colors each. For more information visit www.prodesigndenmark.com

Bold, Sporty….Essential

Bold, Sporty….Essential

A bold Essential frame from ProDesign, with an optimistic, sporty look. This collection is an intentional contrast to the classic sharp design of the Essential line. The designer has played with colors and material and the brushed temples give a high performance feel and are great to touch and wear. The color scheme is very playful which gives a dynamic expression and a beautiful flow between the front and the temples. The collection has the characteristic handmade line all along the edge of the front, which is a special ProDesign trade. This cool, little detail is emphasized by the fact that the fronts are cut off at the hinges instead of bending around the corner to meet the temple. The frames are an fantastic mix between two materials. The firmness of the raw titanium combined with the skin-friendly, flexible and soft rubber acetate of the end-tips. What’s so unique about this collection is the exact color match between the acetate end tips and titanium fronts. They look like they were carved from one single material and such uniformity is hard to accomplish. 5 shapes 4-6 colors each, 2 feminine shapes, 2 masculine and one unisex For more information please call us or visit our...

Prodesign Introduces Essential 1258-63

Prodesign Introduces Essential 1258-63

Slender shapes in refreshing two-tone colors The shapes of this collection are exquisite. You’ll still see the influence of the strong retro-wave, but this collection has gone in a much lighter direction, abandoning the very heavy look of the usual retro collections. The lightness of the frames fit very well with the natural lines of the face, creating a harmony between the frame and the face. The colors that the designer has chosen are subtle and soft with gradients ranging from dark to very light in the same color scheme, supporting the color schemes also found in the face. The exclusive color gradients of this collection are very hard to obtain, and are best achieved through a difficult process of coloring the frames by hand, one at a time. The gradient coloration of the metal is repeated in the colors of the acetate end tips to obtain a uniformity of the entire frame design. 6 shapes, 4 feminine and 2 masculine. All in 3 to 4 colors each. For more information please call us or visit our website at http://prodesigndenmark.com/ US: +1 800 654 6099

New ProDesign Style: Iris 5138-39

Graphical feminism! Usually the Iris frames are ultra-feminine, with flowers and gems. But is doesn’t necessarily have to be that way to be feminine! This Iris collection focuses on the mix of materials and the subtle play on colors. The temples are created from an Italian acetate material that is unique for ProDesign. The stripes in the acetate are created specifically to mimic the rhythm of the design of the temples. All the temples are grey on the inside, but most of them have their own exterior layer, to give them a subtle pop of color. Two shapes, in six colors each For more information please call us or visit our website at http://prodesigndenmark.com/ US: +1 800 654 6099

ProDesign’s Axiom 6133-35

A swiveling hinge! This slim Axiom collection is inspired by the award winning hinge functionality of the Zense collection 7342-45. But this time we’ve turned the hinge inside out! The Axiom frames are all about no-nonsense simplified funtionality, so whereas in the Zense collection, the hinge was cleverly hidden, it’s now here fort he world to see! The little screw that makes up the hinge, is actually a combined hinge and rim lock functionality! To avoid any breakage due to the swivel mechanism, the hinge has a click-function that indicates, when you can’t swivel the hinge any further. Once you’ve swiveled the hinge into place, it takes up no space at all. Three shapes, four to six colors each.

ProDesign’s 4th Dimension 4663-71

ProDesign’s 4th Dimension 4663-71

This collection was inspired by the desire to create a high fashion, contemporary line of frames for the urbane, design-oriented man and woman. Even though the shapes are obviously inspired by the past – you’ll find the classic panto, the Jackie O-shape and the curvy butterfly shape, the collection remains fresh and relevant, because of the colors and the way the acetates layers are combined. The design is “honest” with nothing to hide – you’ll even notice the core wire as an extra detail once you take a closer look at the material. The finishing touch is the distinct end tip color that we have placed on the inside as a little surprise! Quite untraditionally there are no less than nine shapes in this collection! Two shapes only come in two colors and the rest come in four colors each. They are all ready for progressive lenses.

The Art Of Prodesign’s 4th Dimension 4660-62

The Art Of Prodesign’s 4th Dimension 4660-62

Art in layers! The art of making an acetate frame, can seem to easy at times. Behind this special collection lies hours of perfecting the pressing and cutting process. To obtain the 3D effect of the transition between the temple and the front, the acetate material must be cut very precisely so when you bend it, the upperside will still look smooth. The temple itself is a study in cutting and assembling the acetate layers correctly – best seen in the transparent acetate layer which is added last, but is still a seamless part of the entire temple. The color combinations range from exclusive and classic to vibrant and dramatic! Some of these frames are not for the faint hearted! Three shapes, one of them in two sizes, in six colors each.

New Prodesign Style: Essential 1242-46

Metal frames with volume and color: A new challenge! Often our designers want to challenge themselves as well as the material they work with. How can you take a flat sheet of metal and give it volume and make it interesting without making it clumsy or bulky? The solution was to make a number of „steps“ in the temples which creates depth in combination with the beautiful colors. Usually when our designers work with metal, they have used two, maybe three colors, and in this collection they have used no less than five colors! This was possible due to the structure of the pattern on the temples. The frames are first painted in the basic color and then each step is colored by hand. This is a slow and very accurate task. The colors are mostly classic autumn tones and some more lively colors for those who wish to make a statement. The shapes are also classic with just a pinch of retro fashion Three feminine shapes and two masculine shapes, in four colors each. All suitable for progressive lenses.
