Götti Perspective - The future is rimless

The future is rimless. Götti reinvents rimless eyeglasses, making them into the most progressive glasses of the day – technically as well as aesthetically. The precise, ultralight, and infinitely comfortable construction forgoes screws, glue, and soldering: Temples, hinges, nose bridge and its attachments on the glass become one completed work. Rimless oblige.
The glasses were developed by Götti Switzerland – from the glass attachment to the hinge. The rimless eyeglasses are made from high-quality stainless steel. This means they are very light and skin-friendly. And it’s all “Made in Switzerland.”

Sven, why the sudden hype about rimless glasses? They’ve really been around forever…
The hype surrounding more delicate metal frames has been building for some time now. So rimless frame designs are taking that to the extreme.

Is there a new avant-garde customer demanding these frames? Or is demand more driven by technical features such as lightness, comfort, and unimpeded field of vision?
Right now they are actually kind of the new nerd glasses. Some people find them ultra cool, while others regard it as an old hat. I find it super interesting that the fashion avant-garde has discovered rimless glasses. But I think that rimless frames embody the larger trend towards more delicate glasses, so they’ll be having a revival.

What exactly are these rimless innovations?
Our goal right from the start has been to not just develop another screw-based, rimless frame. We wanted an entirely new system, entirely independent of screws, soldering, or glues. At this point I can attest that it’s a pretty ambitious goal and really an example of major league eyewear design.

Without screws and other fixtures, how did GÖTTI succeed in connecting the lenses to, say, the nose bridge and temples?
After countless variations and experiments, we decided to create the connecting element via 3D-printing. Thereby we ended up finding the perfect material characteristics for our system. The connecting element is inserted into the drilling hole and adjusted in length depending on lens thickness. Our temples and nose bridges are pressure-joined with the connecting element via a proprietary clavalus, creating a long-lasting connection.

What are the advantages of your technology?
There is far less strain on the lenses, since they have no contact whatsoever with metal, only the polymer connecting element.

Are there other aspects of the Perspective Collection you would like to emphasize?
All processes behind this project were developed in-house and many are implemented right here in Switzerland. We have also created a win-win situation by continuing the working relationship with an organization that trains and supports adolescents with learning disabilities. All of this has allowed us to create a high-end product, “Made in Switzerland”.

Production

TITANIUM
Götti Switzerland provides the best of two worlds: craftsmanship and high-tech. For over 20 years, this has all been happening in Japan at a leading producer in a sophisticated production process marked by a passion for quality. Titanium has great advantages as a material for glasses: It is very light and non-allergenic.

Movie Titanium Story

ACETATE
Surprising patterns result from layered acetate, that has been pulled in all different directions. The effect is like the view through a kaleidoscope. In total it takes 200 to 250 work steps to manufacture and hand polish acetate glasses. They are produced by leading manufacturers in Germany and Austria, exclusively for Götti.

GENUINE HORN
Horn is a light and skin-friendly material that feels as pleasant to the touch as cashmere. The raw material for Götti glasses comes from the Asian water buffalo. It is very well suited for processing into horn sheets. These sheets are used to create unique frames with hues ranging from midnight black to chestnut brown to light honey. Each pair of glasses is unique. The manufacturer in Germany works exclusively for the company.

HAND POLISHED BY?

Each Acetate frame is hand-polished – with the polisher’s personal quality seal.

They are named Barbara, Ludmilla, Renate and Waltraud. Their hands bear the traces of many years of experience. With talent and precision, they use trained movements to polish the unmistakable Götti shine on our acetate eyeglasses. Their hands move with precision so that the nuances of each pair of Götti glasses can be lovingly brought to life.
Starting now, Waltraud and her colleagues will place their names in each pair of our acetate glasses. They add their quality seal so that each pair of acetate frames bears their very personal finish.
