Orgreen Glasses: Nordic & Japanese Fusion

We love finding young and upcoming brands that set a new agenda for the eyewear world, and Orgreen Optics does exactly that. Founded in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1997, Orgreen’s aim is to design durable, reliable and timeless frames for individuals who truly appreciate quality eyewear.

This fresh eyewear designer now sells prescription eyewear and sunglasses in more than 50 countries around the world, but remains humble by keeping its headquarters in the city of its origin: Copenhagen.

Unparalleled Craftmanship

Orgreen Optics is the story of two cultures, fusing Danish design with Japanese skill. Japan is a country known for its excellence in eyewear manufacturing, meaning only the highest quality frames are produced.

With such dedicated master craftsmen at work, it comes as no surprise that each frame goes through more than 100 working stages when being handcrafted to absolute perfection; a process that can sometimes take up to 6 months! The new pair of Orgreen glasses will then be adjusted, cleaned and inspected thoroughly before being presented to you, the customer.

You’ll only find the finest precious metals like titanium and beta-titanium being used to make a strong, long-lasting pair of Orgreen glasses frames or sunglasses. Even their colours are developed with incredible skill at some of the world’s leading colour labs in Japan, with the colouring process alone consisting of more than 15 steps.

This is because there are more than 400 hues that are put together in opposites; from powerful to serene, raw to distinguished and daring to minimalist, to create the perfect combination.

From colour, to hinges and rivets, no part of an Orgreen frame goes unnoticed by highly skilled Japanese craftsmen.

Orgreen Glasses: Style

These Danish glasses reflect the creative expression of the 1950s and 1960s. Standards were set back then by architects and designers like Arne Jacobsen, who favoured originality, quality, minimalism and clean lines- elements that can all be found in our own frames now.

However, the frames originality comes from the unique and subtle details that Orgeen use to put their own spin on them,  ‘inspired by street culture, extreme sports and classic cars’. Orgreen glasses certainly do tell a story, mixing playfulness, provocativeness and liveliness together to challenge the prescribed norms of the eyewear world.

These titanium Orgreen sunglasses, named XY and YX have a unisex design, aimed at challenging our perceptions of gender beyond our chromosomes, to explore duality and contrast.

 

They achieve this without being arrogant, instead priding themselves on the quality of their eyewear rather than chasing short-lived trends. In essence, Orgreen’s distinctive style remains consistent throughout all of their frame collections, resulting in timeless, understated, luxury eyewear that will never go out of fashion.
