Forward-oriented Italian design, advanced use of premium materials
[perfectpullquote align=”left” bordertop=”false” cite=”Marco Barp, TREE SPECTACLES, Co-Founder ” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=”15″]These two series complete the designs in our TITANIUM Collection which is currently attracting much attention and success. We wanted to continue on the same path in terms of innovation by using new milling effects, a fresh colour palette and playful reflections of light. We love the minimal look and we are absolutely delighted to have achieved unique colour and effects in titanium – using light as opposed to colour – with really surprising, eyecatching results.[/perfectpullquote]
Through specialised architecture inspired techniques and careful attention to details and surfaces, Italian label Tree Spectacles presents a one-of-a-kind TITANIUM Collection featuring faceted surfaces, more usually seen in acetate eyewear. These surfaces produce a soft glinting effect in the light. The brand is launching two new series which play with this concept, each one with two models.
Series 1, with models ESCHILO and DAFNE, uses a combination of pure titanium for fronts, and beta titanium for temples. The faceted upper surface of the frame front creates the illusion of a two-tone design, although just one colour is featured. The upper rims are slightly shiny and catch the light. Series 2, with models HARRY and SHEM, also combines titanium for fronts and beta titanium for temples. The models are created using a milling technique on the block titanium. In this Series, the designer plays with real colour combinations (in contrast to Series 1). The colours are elegant and muted to achieve a very clean and modern architectural look. www.treespectacles.com
Model ESCHILO in Series 1 is a smart rectangular titanium frame for men with the faceted surface on the upper rims. Colours include solid black and solid silver – although the faceted surface gives the appearance of a two-tone combination.
Model DAFNE in Series 1 is a woman’s frame with a modified oval shape, and the faceted surface on the upper rims, which adds a delicate shine or glistening effect to the design. Colours include pastel pink and light mauve.
Model HARRY in Series 2 is a round unisex design in a two-tone colorway of blue/pale blue and pink/lilac. Where the frame front has undergone the milling technique, the play of colours is highlighted with true finesse.
Model SHEM in Series 2 is a bold rectangular men’s frame with the innovative two-tone colourway in black/silver and silver/pale blue. The milled section of the frame front gives depth to the material which in turn creates a special effect on the face.

Marco Barp, Co-Founder of TREE SPECTACLES, has grown up in a family of eyewear producers in Belluno, Italy. His first collection launched at MIDO in 2012, the result of intense R&D to create niche ‘Made in Italy’ products in layers of wood ‘sandwiched’ with carbon fibre – a design innovation which was quickly praised (and patented) for its lightness, comfort, flexibility, and unique beauty. Today the company produces a wide variety of collections including luxury and design series in wood/carbon fibre, buffalo horn, titanium and acetate.
