Low on weight, high on personality

Silhouette’s lite wave collection makes a statement with pared-back shapes

Introducing a full-rim model that feels practically weightless. With the Lite Wave collection, the Austrian premium eyewear manufacturer Silhouette has created the embodiment of lightness— a pair of glasses that weighs just 3.68 grams— with a purist design puts the wearer’s face center stage. Craftmanship and materials are the secrets behind the incredible lightness of the glasses, which have a strikingly thin 100% titanium frame made using a high-tech laser.

New shapes. Sought-after colors
First launched in January 2021, the Silhouette Lite Wave is now available in three brand-new shapes. That means that the wearer can get creative and customize their glasses to match their personality, making a statement that has their own unique stamp. The round unisex shape is available in the colors Power Red, Energetic Beetroot, Timeless Gold and Pure Black. The new masculine shape is based on the aviator design and offers wearers an extra color choice of Casual Denim. Meanwhile, the angular, unusual women’s shape is available in attractive Balanced Rose, Velvet Cassis, Tonic Agave, and Restful Olive.

Outstanding design for customers who know the difference
The subtle, flowing transition from the titanium front to the earpiece gains instant style points, while the technology is pretty smart too, featuring a closing mechanism hidden in the end piece that makes adjusting the glasses child’s play. With an elegant, understated titanium frame and contemporary style, these glasses are sure to appeal to urbanites who love unconventional design, and who want to create their own personal look. The Lite Wave isn’t just a hit with customers either. Its innovative design impressed an international jury enough to win the “Product” category at the iF Design Award. “We enjoyed using our core material titanium in a very innovative way to create a fantastic pair of ultralight glasses. With its striking shapes and unique closing mechanism, the Lite Wave is like nothing else out there on the market today,” says Roland Keplinger, Design Director at Silhouette.
