Meet Rigel, a delicate model from the latest collection of Lunithe. This alternative to the classic rimless frame uses a unique screwless hinge system, twisted and nested, that allow the temples to twist in all directions without ever to separate from the face. The lenses themselves are relieved of the tension by a second system of subtle strapping which prevents breakage. Flexible, strong, elegant and harmonious, this Neo-Vintage styled with its high nose-bridge and nod to the old pince-nez, can be easily disassembled and reassembled, weighing no more than 15 grams. Light as a leaf, as on which the design was initially inspired on.
