Amy is wearing the “Phantom” by Haffmans und Neumeister. A sporty early 20th-century mountain climber style frame, stripped down to its purist form. It is a design that was later repurposed in the mid-90s among the cyber-goth community. Round with flat and straight double bridge, this wire-frame silhouette features a subtractive design concept. The focus of Philipp Haffmans remains solely on the raw material.
The LINE collection
Haffmans & Neumeister’s LINE collection, is a methodically curated tour through the timeline of eyewear’s historical icons. By selecting the quintessential form of each style’s respective era and subjecting it to a dogmatic design process, they create surprising, reduced sheet-metal silhouettes. Unadulterated form is achieved with ultra-minimal bare-metal models.
About Haffmans und Neumeister
Haffmans und Neumeister founders Daniel and Philipp have stood at the vanguard of eyewear design for over twenty years. With ic! berlin and MYKITA, they conquered and transformed the eyewear market through the invention of, and innovative experiments with, fat sheet-metal frames.
Philipp Haffmans continues the tradition he pioneered twenty years ago of utilising a dogmatic design process that hones in on the absolute essential, stripping away artifce in favour of honouring the sincerity of the raw material. The new hinge design, an elegant and integrated execution, speaks to this ethos, highlighting the beauty of its technological solution.
