March is an exciting month at Grey St. Optician! We have not one, but two amazing new brands to introduce.. the first of these is QUANTUM.
Our good friend Henrik Ørgreen has expanded his Ørgreen Optics portfolio with a completely new concept.
Quantum, the latin word for “amount”, has its roots in physics and refers to the smallest possible discrete entity of any physical property. Ørgreen have devised a spherical component for a new hinge which is hidden in the front of the frame – now that is discrete!
The front of the frame is 3D printed polyamide, the sides are Ørgreen’s signature material, high quality Japanese titanium. The new hinge is the magic that links the two together! Here’s a video showing how:
There is a Quantum frame for everyone; the colours include vivid hues and subtle tones, the styles range from classic to contemporary. All of the frames have the unique Ørgreen quality of being understated but with attitude!
Fun at the Fair
Here’s a little throwback to October 2017 when we were the first to see prototypes of Quantum at an international trade show. As you can see the Ørgreen stand is not only popular for their fantastic eyewear but also their amazing smoking mojito’s, Salud!
At Grey St. Optician, we are committed to finding the freshest and finest independent eyewear brands on the planet. There are some AMAZING frames out there and we have so much fun curating a collection to bring back to our boutique in the centre of Newcastle. We want you to share our passion for eyewear and look forward to welcoming you to our store!
