But glasses also are everyday objects. Many Nordic designers are inspired by Scandinavian design to offer both functional and refined frames.
In Denmark, luxury eyeglass designer Lindberg predominates. Specializing in perforated frames, the brand is known for its minimalist forms, as are typical of Scandinavian design. Lindberg glasses are made with precious and rare materials like titanium, acetate, horn, and even diamond! In France, these Danish glasses have plenty of fans—they have received acclaim from Lionel Jospin and even François Hollande.
Fjords and glasses: Swedish frames
A little further north, Swedish designer Scandinavian Eyewear leads the pack. Their designs are minimalist, in sober colors. The brand also always offers glasses that are suitable for big faces. A leader in Nordic eyewear, Scandinavian Eyewear embodies a combination of traditional know-how and modern Swedish design.
