FACIAL ART

– SOFT AND SMOOTH, WARM, UNIQUE –
VENEER IS THE IDEAL MATERIAL FOR A PAIR OF SPECTACLES.
A MANUFACTURER IN TYROL OPENS THE EYES OF THE SPECTACLES WORLD.





"You should take wood seriously. Otherwise it will do with you what it will"

Yes, Roland Wolf has a spectacles fad, no question about it. "I started to wear spectacles when I was 14, although I didn't need to", he admits. It is precisely this enthusiasm that has enabled the Tyrolean to make his firm, Rolf Spectacles, one of the hottest spectacle makers around. The spectacles from Tyrol are completely made of wood.

"A pair of spectacles is an optical aid, which is used to correct or assist defective eyesight" is the dictionary definition, but in fact spectacles are far more than that. Imagine a professor without their old fashioned nickel spectacles, a hipster without their horn-rimmed spectacles to match their beard or Karl Lagerfeld without his black sunglasses. The spectacles are always an expression of the wearer's own personality. Individuality is everything.

Spectacles make fashion and are repeatedly a subject for new design. With veneer, Roland Wolf has discovered a completely new material with which to design his spectacles. The veneer gives the surface its natural grain and makes each individual pair of spectacles a unique item that has no exact equal anywhere.
