TAMAL-S / Sunglasses

Discipline: Product

Curved sunglasses offer great protection against UV radiation, but they also take up more space when stowing. The patented SPIN&STOW rotating hinge enables the eyeglass temples to twist so that götti sunglasses can be folded flat. This new technology consists of a few individual components that are held together without a fixed connection and are discretely integrated into the product. The reduced design of the sunglasses made from flat metal runs consistently through the collection to the ultra-thin eyeglass frames. In addition to their innovative rotating hinge, they offer lightness, wearing comfort and enhanced stability.

  • DATE OF LAUNCH 2016

  • DEVELOPMENT TIME up to 12 months

  • TARGET REGIONS Asia, Australia/Oceania, Europe, North America

  • TARGET GROUPS Consumer / User, Trade / Industry

  • ASSESMENT CRITERIA Aesthetics, Practicability, Innovation

Design juries love products that solve problems in an elegant fashion, as the Tamal-S sunglasses do. Curved sunglasses offer high protection against solar radiation, but need correspondingly more space when storing. The rotating side arms in this design enable the glasses to fold almost completely flat, and it's done with a simple elegance to make a stunning pair of spectacles.
