Strong, independent and distinct.
Through research and experimentation, this collection fuses individual elements into a new and multi-layered aesthetic. Crossing lines create intervening spaces; varying thicknesses evoke a sense of depth.
Daring material combinations alongside delicate colour tint transitions result in an unexpected three-dimensionality. Inspired by the future, architecture and geometry.
Veronika Wildgruber Eyewear first appeared in 2010 with four hand-made frames made in collaboration with the french lunetier Jacques Durand. Following their initial presentation at the Silmo show they immediately won the Silmo d’Or special Jury price. Encouraged by this response the first series production was launched in 2012.
In 2017 she got awarded again with the precious Silmo d’Or for Best Design Sunglasses.
From the beginning the emphasis was on research and experimentation, which is also due to Veronika being a product designer. The collection follows a central theme, recognizable from the outset. It is reinvented and translated into different materials and processed to other levels, whilst establishing an unmistakable formal coherence.
All components and manufacturing steps are entirely made in ITALY.
Every frame is delivered with the MANUFACTURING card, a detailed list of the origin of every part and place of production. The whole fabrication process is transparent and traceable for the customer.
We established precious collaborations with our metal and acetate manufactures, all family-owned factories in the province of Treviso and Belluno in the Italian region Veneto.
In the JDO Atelier, our workshop, we are able to make prototypes, limited editions and custom-made frames.
