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.
