Morel elaborates on Öga’s philosophy of combining design with function with six new additions to the Tråd concept with a patented flex-hinge system which is both bold and visually simplistic. Limited Edition Tråd models were previously released at Vision Expo West 2014. These models featured a dowel pin on the frame’s front to hold the Morel’s patented flex-hinge system in place exhibiting Trad’s functional design. This release of Tråd features the same flex-hinge system which has been adapted to no longer play a role in the frame’s front. The flex-hinge is made of a 1.4mm stainless steel wire folded into a clip which connects the front with the temple via the endpiece. The hinge fulfills an integral part of the frame’s appeal, giving it an intriguing personality. Tråd is available in a masculine color palette and offers three semi-rimless stainless steel models, two full-rimmed titanium models, and one full-rimmed acetate model.
