Amy is wearing model Wakefield by Haffmans und Neumeister. A universally-fitting square 1970s wire-frame which silhouette gets a subtle jewellery-like impression by its precision bent table-bridge . The lens shape is highlighted through the reduced line weight of the frame.
By equipping an ophthalmic frame with a deeply saturated, solid tint that obscures the eyewire and masks the eyes, our friends at Haffmans und Neumeister are able to create an entirely new persona for both the frame and the wearer.
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.
