What began in 1964 with a vision – eyewear as an accessory – has today become the world's leading brand in lightweight quality eyewear: Silhouette. Under this brand, the lightest eyewear in the world is produced in Austria with a great love of detail, crafted mostly by hand in an individualized design using only the best materials and state-of-the-art technologies and exported to 100 countries across the globe. In 1999, Silhouette revolutionized the world of eyewear with Titan Minimal Art weighing just 1.8 grams, with no rims, screws or hinges. Silhouette eyewear has accompanied astronauts into outer space on 35 missions, has traveled around the world with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, and is worn by a number of big names in entertainment, business and politics.
Aside from Silhouette’s goal to make eyewear as lightweight and comfortable as possible, through innovative materials and by reducing it to its most essential, it also strives to make eyewear as an element of overall appearance. Silhouette’s stunning eyewear designs have won dozens of international design awards. If you look at the evolution of the brand, the styles and inspirations may have changed, but the design language has remained true to Silhouette: revolutionary, lightweight, comfortable, and aesthetically pleasing.
