ROLF Spectacles is a small, family-run business in the heart of the Tyrolean Alps producing incomparable eyewear from natural materials. The company was founded in 2009 by Roland and Marija with their siblings Martin and Christian. The initial creative process was improvised and highly experimental, using a milking machine, moped brakes and a coffee table.
Through trial and error, the founders developed a special glazing system to insert lenses into inflexible materials without cutting through the frame. The one-of-a-kind wooden hinge is made entirely of wood, without screws or metal parts.
Take fine wood and mix it with excellent design. Always a feast for the eyes. ROLF Spectacles will be unveiling its newest wood eyewear at SILMO 2016. “Traction” and “Genie” are the most recent additions to the excellence collection, while “Admiral”, “Landaulet” and “Snipe” are the latest frames out of the ROLF evolved collection.
Green Design Award
The Duett 93 from the evolved collection was chosen in April 2016 as a GREEN AWARD 2016 Green Product Selection; to be nominated, entries must be produced in an environmentally-friendly way. The elegant, masculine form gives the Duett a refined note. The design is a blend of simple elegance and precision. The finest wood, here in Bog Oak | Walnut, is a natural material, vibrant, warm, and comfortable to wear.
