“The Danish Heritage Collection is our edgy interpretation of hip and innovative design picking up on urban trends.”

Martin Jespersen, Eyewear Architect at ProDesign Denmark

Jennifer is wearing model 4146 from the Danish heritage collection of Prodesign. For our 50 years of Silmo Special, this vintage looking frame was classified in the “Techy10s decade”. The Techy10s are all about reinventing the basics and have it work to create something completely new yet still recognisable, like the basic simplicity and honesty of this Prodesign frame re-invented. The rim surrounding the lens is enclosed in a very easy-to-understand rim lock that at the same time forms the hinge of the frame.


The designers at Prodesign create beautiful eyewear with a clean-cut Scandinavian feel. Drawing on Danish heritage they design innovative eyewear with a close-knit relationship between functionality and visual expression. It is all about creating that perfect match, which makes you feel as good as you look.
