The model ARA is a delicate frame with a terrific shape that conveys a stylish and clear expression. These glasses made of buffalo horn provide a charming and at the same time casual performance and are universally usable. The natural horn material is bent with specially developed technology around the end of the frame front. The creation from one single piece of horn ensures that fiber, color and structure of the horn are consistent throughout the whole frame.
The unisex model ARA was awarded the Red Dot Design Award – winner fashion design for high design quality.

Over the past few years, a small group of selected employees has developed new horn processing technologies in our factory in Austria. Now, we can do something that seemed unachievable at first – like reaching the stars – which was our motivation for MONOCEROS: we bend a single plate of natural horn around the endpiece of the eyeglasses with a specially developed technology and refine it by hand. This creates the unique MONOCEROS horn frame.
