Design and Technology

An unfaltering passion for high-quality frames. Consummate knowledge drawn from the world of engineering, physics, and micro-mechanics. Von Arkel frames symbolise the convergence of style, technology,
and exclusivity.

The Von Arkel brand’s signature characteristic – the hinge – is made exclusively in Switzerland, bringing
together all the advantages of the ‘Swiss Made’ concept: unparalleled excellence in the hinge-creation process, quality, precision, innovation, and reliability. In our stainless steel range, the metal parts are created by combining two technologies.

The result? Exceptionally precise cut-lines and perfectly-balanced flexibility depending on the frame part itself. Simply put, those parts subject to heavy use are thicker, while those requiring greater mobility are thinner. This guarantees maximum comfort while ensuring the greatest solidity at the key wear-points.

Titanium, stainless steel, acetate, or buffalo horn. To every style, its unique frame. Solid and ultra-light,
the Von Arkel frames are easy to slip on and firm for the wearer. The colours applied to the metallic parts are obtained thanks to a state-of-the-art PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition) process that ensures deep colour saturation
and outstanding reliability. Thanks to this, the colours truly stand the test of time.
