ROLF SPECTACLES: Good Design Award

We proudly present…the winner of the GOOD Design Award

Zephyr 204 in bog oak | walnut of the ROLF excellence collection

This frame represents ROLF Spectacles top of the line – natural eyewear made from wood with lots of enthusiasm and great, precise technology.  The model Zephyr is a classic and timeless frame, but on the other hand a unique eye-catcher and thus a stylish accessory.

The model Zephyr is available in different wood combinations: bog oak | walnut, eucalyptus, silver oak and eucalyptus | maple.

On top, silver oak is available in two-tone style, and eucalyptus | maple is available with engravings.


Each year, The Chicago Athenaeum presents the GOOD DESIGN Awards Program for the most innovative and cutting-edge industrial, product, and graphic designs produced around the world.

The emphasis of the GOOD DESIGN program is on quality design of the highest form, function, and aesthetics a standard beyond ordinary consumer products and graphics. The Chicago Athenaeum’s GOOD DESIGN program forwards the ideals of a design process that embodies product excellence and endurance and strong public identity.

GOOD DESIGN is an international symbol of a company’s firm commitment to innovation and superior design embodiment. Materials and products are accessed into the Museum’s Permanent Design Collection and frequently exhibited in the United States and abroad.

The characteristics of the new excellence collection are the more sophisticated wooden hinge, the optimized lens glazing system and meticulously executed details such as two-tone styles and engravings. The symbiosis of high design quality requirements and state-of-the-art production technologies forms the basis for these innovations.

During production the differing size tolerances of the non-homogeneous materials are compensated by implementing advanced 3D-measuring for the first time, which in turn maximizes the design scope. Blank forms of 11 layers combined with the optimized lens glazing system allow for extremely thin rimmed frames. A result of our drive to constantly improve, the screwless and maintenance free wooden hinge of the excellence collection reaches a new level in terms of precision and design.

ROLF SPECTACLES will be featured at LOFT NYC from March 30 – April 2 at Hudson Mercantile 10th & 36th NYC
