The LUPO is a signature piece of GABE Eyewear’s debut collection STROM. This handcrafted unique metal-free frame made of wood and horn represents an array of accessories that underline every wearer’s personality. Combining unique shapes with new technologies, our creations are precisely assembled, extremely light and very optician-friendly. With the “Snap Joint” hinge, we developed an unrivaled innovation in the industry. This screwless and maintenance-free horn joint is a signature feature of all our eyewear creations. The “Snap Joint” allows the easy upgrade to fully adaptable temples made of horn or a combination of wood and horn.
