Silhouette Eyewear History and Eyewear Approach

In 1964, Anneliese and Arnold Schmied founded Silhouette with the mission of creating the world’s most beautiful eyewear. Their headquarters is based in Linz Austria, and they run 13 international subsidiaries and a regional office. In 1983, the Silhouette groundbreaking innovation of high-tech SPX® synthetic material opened a new dimension in incredibly lightweight eyewear design.

In 1999, Silhouette released its patented Titan Minimal Art (TMA) model as the world’s lightest eyewear, weighing just 1.8 grams. Silhouette has grown to become one of the most enduring eyewear designers of all time, loved around the world for its perfect fit, flexible frames, and virtual indestructibility.

Silhouette rimless eyeglasses can be custom designed to suit you. You start by choosing the shape that fits your face and appeals to your style. Thereafter you select the style and color of the three-piece frame. You can also choose the shape of the lens. The lens can be made larger or smaller as desired.

Silhouette’s prescription glasses are manufactured from durable, superior-quality materials. The thin, high-tech lenses are made from a tough polycarbonate,
ensuring they are extremely light and shatterproof. Many of the frames are made from Silhouette’s innovative SPX®+ material and high-tech titanium.

Silhouette’s premium sunglasses come with the sophistication of Silhouette Light Management® technology. It protects the eyes from harmful blue light in the 400 to 500 nanometers (nm) range and provides UV 400 protection.
