Utilizing titanium frame constructions to achieve durable yet lightweight eyewear is by no means a new occurrence in the eyeglass space, though premium glasses brand LINDBERG has taken this concept to the next level with the debut of the Danish eyewear outfit’s new Thintanium Collection.
Winner of both an iF World Design Guide Gold award and one of the Best of the Best titles at this year’s Red Dot Design Awards, the patent-pending Thintanium Collection almost certainly represents the lightest pairs of full-plate titanium glasses on the planet, with these sleek specs tipping the scales at as little as 3-grams (or 0.006lbs). Taking its name from the innovative hypoallergenic titanium strips present on the glasses, the collection comes in a variety of frame designs and features a new, fully integrated screwless hinge setup and a minimalistic, nearly rimless frame. These featherweight glasses can also be customized on a made-to-order basis, with the user able to select from a wide range of anodized color options, between different multi-adjustable ergonomic nose pads, and the option for custom engraving along the arms. Available now, the LINDBERG Thintanium Collection starts from around $835.
