Every GLAS frame begins as a mere spark of imagination, a vision waiting to be brought to life. In this post, we invite you to journey with us from the initial concept to the final creation of a GLAS frame, showcasing the dedication and artistry that goes into each piece.
Our journey begins with inspiration – often drawn from the rich tapestry of Scandinavian design, fashion trends, or even a moment of everyday beauty. Armed with pencils and passion, our designers translate these inspirations into preliminary sketches.
Selecting the right materials is crucial. We source high-quality acetate, metals, and lenses, ensuring that each material not only looks good but feels comfortable and stands the test of time.
Once the design is finalized, we move to prototyping. This is where our sketches take physical form. Using state-of-the-art technology and traditional craftsmanship, we create the first model of the new frame. This prototype is essential for assessing aesthetics, fit, and functionality.
The creation of the frames is a blend of modern technology and traditional handcrafting techniques. Each frame is carefully shaped, polished, and assembled by our skilled artisans. "Every curve, every edge is shaped with precision and care," one of our craftsmen shares.
Before any frame can bear the GLAS name, it must pass rigorous quality control checks. We scrutinize every aspect, from the hinges' strength to the lenses' clarity. Only the best make it through, ensuring that what reaches you is nothing short of perfection.
The final step is adding the finishing touches – the subtle branding and the final polish.
