- the original carbon frame;
Blac is a novel innovative eyewear brand. Revolutionary designer eyewear made from carbon fiber reinforced with titanium. A lightweight frame yet very strong. Blac is the world's first adjustable carbon fiber frame, with the patent to prove it. Designed and handmade exclusively by our own production team in the Bellinger House in Risskov, Denmark. It is designed by Bellinger.
Blac - the fabulous story;
Begins with designer Claus Bellinger and his fascination of McLaren's carbon-composite MP4-1 body, which rocked the Formula 1 world at Silverstone in 1981. The MP4-1 was the first full carbon Formula 1 body, designed as a moulding, rather than the traditional series of flat aluminium panels mechanically fixed together. The reward for challenging conventional thinking was a gigantic leap in strength and sturdiness that would revolutionize racing car design. The characteristics of the carbon fiber and fibreglass composite are its unique woven surface, an unusual lightness combined with great strength.
Blac - a pioneering marathon;
Years in the making, the development of Blac is that of a true pioneering marathon. Never before had composite materials such as carbon fiber been applied in eyewear productions on a full frame, where the requirement was for it to be adjustable, so hands-on experience was gained from teaming up with an expert in carbon fiber knee joints and athletics sprint prostheses. A hard-earned, labour-intensive, voyage of exploration through trial and error land that has resulted in cutting edge carbon fiber manufacturing know-how.
Blac is handmade in Denmark;
by our own specialized production team located in the Bellinger House in Risskov, Denmark. With the worlds' first adjustable carbon temple - and with a patent to prove it, the top secret, novel production process allows for each Blac frame to get special attention and craftsmanship, ensuring a unique design of each frame. All frames are custom made by hand for each individual customer with hinges, screws and end tips tailored for our Blac frames.
All carbon fiber and fibreglass frames in the Blac line are manufactured using the raw material directly in the process. No lacquer is attached providing each frame with a unique raw surface of the woven carbon fiber and fibreglass fabric.
