ØRGREEN: On Fire Collection

As a curiosity driven company Ørgreen has always had a penchant for the path of innovation leading towards invention and exploration.

Alongside the pioneering drive, Ørgreen is known for creating timeless eyewear design and has an inherent inclination for all things that last – the beloved items we keep and cherish as they get only more intriguing and unique by the day.

 

Forever fascinated by the patina effect on metal – be it on motorbike parts, cars or tools – Ørgreen’s design team longed to stray from the well-known route of coloring and painting the frames and venture into an experiment of working with patina and metal treatment.

Uniting hereby innovation and the beauty of aging in style. It wasn’t an easy mission. Compared with other metals like steel, brass and copper, titanium is such a hard material that very few techniques can be used to create the desired patina effect.

 

Going back to basics, to the rawness of the elements, they found the solution in a natural coloring method: Fire. And the result showed to be pretty unique.

Using a special technique, they were able to imprint flame colours onto the titanium. Creating thus a truly special iridescent effect with frames ranging in colour from purple/blue to red/yellow depending on the temperature of the firing process.

 

The result is a limited edition series of six frames, three optical glasses and three sunglasses, where each piece is unique and will slightly change throughout time and wear.
