Entry Description: Flaminia 202 of the “excellence collection” stands out with its feminine and classy design. The frame present a sophisticated butterfly shape, elegant and classic. The frame combines most impressively the wood types eucalyptus and silver oak. The smoking of the wood gives the eucalyptus veneer a very expressive colour which doesn’t show any signs of aging even after many years and is also more durable. The steaming process creates a silver shimmer which gives the veneer an elegant appearance. The excellence collection presents more sophisticated wooden hinge, the optimised lens-glazing system and meticulously executed details such as two-tone styles and engravings. The frame can be adjusted for each client using heat. The ergonomically shaped temple tips are comfortable to put on. ROLF frames have no screws or metal, are extremely light, comfortable to wear, easy-care, maintenance-free and suitable for allergy sufferers.

About the Designer/Company
ROLF Spectacles produces handmade, natural eyewear in the heart of the Tyrolean Alps. The frames are made out of wood, stone and wood combinations and horn. One of the company goals is to set new trends in design and to implement new ideas. One of those ideas and special features of each ROLF frame is the unique ROLF glazing system as well as the wooden hinge. What began as a provisional experiment in a basement in 2007 using moped brakes, a milking machine and old cylinders culminated with the Silmo d‘Or in the category „Technology and Innovation“ at the Paris Silmo in 2009 - an incredible success for a young company from the Tirol. To date, further numerous international awards have been added to the collection. ROLF Spectacles combines best eyewear design with innovative materials and techniques as well as high levels of craftsmanship.
