HANDMADE WOODONE GLASSES FRAMES SHINE WITH SWAROVSKI ZIRCONIA
Debut Collection of Exclusive, Swarovski Zirconia Embellished Wood Glasses
The original idea for WooDone came in 2009 from the inspiring Dolomite landscapes and the region’s beautiful native woods such as cherry, acacia, and walnut. It took Thomas Oberegger and Klaus Tavella a further three years to bring their initial conception to fruition with a September 2012 debut at Silmo, the Parisian international optics, and eyewear trade fair. They manufacture their WooDone glasses from several veneer layers compressed together into a single plywood sheet, which is then milled into the required glasses shape using a specially developed technology. At only 14 grams, each model is unique with the grain of the wood running across the entire body and temples of the glasses without interruption. They couple this with a screw-less spring hinge made of a special alloy that ensures both functionality and durability. The finish, a transparent varnish also used for children’s toys completes this hypo allergic, ecologically sound and easy-care product that has now been re-conceived as a high fashion must-have with the addition of an unbroken line of Swarovski Zirconia.
