No screws, no rivets, no welds, minimalist design, extremely light and easy to adjust by a trained optician - the luxury eyewear from Lindberg combines design, function and fashion. It all started in around 1986, with the forward looking optometrist Poul-Jørn Lindberg looking for a ligthweight glasses for himself. Unable to find a pair in his own shop that would be lightweight and minimalist enough, Dr. Lindberg decided to design his own frame. Teaming up with the famous Danish architect Hans Dissing, the doctor came up with the Air Titanium frames. The Lindberg first batch of titanium, originally used in the space shuttle, was obtained from a US firm whose main dealings were with Boeing.
Today, the family-run Danish business is led by Henrik Lindberg, trained architecht who graduated from Aarhus School of Architecture in Aarhus, Denmark in 1985. All Lindberg collections / lines are manufactured for adults and children, in both optical and sunglasses, and are readily adaptable to the contours of any face. In addition to using acetate and platinum, Lindberg makes truly luxury eye wear frames forged from 18-carat solid gold, shaped from buffalo horn or Siberian mammoth tusk, and inlaid with pink diamonds from the Argyle.
Recognized as one of the world leading international luxury eyewear companies, Lindberg currently boasts 85 awards for design and technical achievement.
