ByWP – the name is composed using the initials of Wolfgang Proksch, creating a link with the designer’s name. Glasses frames formed from wafer-thin stainless steel or beta titanium sheet with a patented screw-free hinge solution and connection assembly. Japanese material refined with an ionic coating, with hinge flexibility and hardness, paired with timeless design to produce a quality product.
The collection is defined by its clear aesthetics, reflecting a subtle sense of style and successfully combining modern fashion with industrial design language. High-tech engineering is used to shape highly flexible, wafer-thin stainless steel that is then refined using ionic electroplating, hand-polished or matte finished. New materials such as acetate or titanium give the style an alternative edge.
The innovative hinge: A cylindrical half-shell as a gliding and rotating element and spring tongues for the snap-mechanics. It encompasses a screw free solution. Oxy – claims to be the most beautiful simple frame in the world of its kind. A lofty yet justified credo for the range under the ByWP brand, which has been acclaimed with numerous international design prizes. The Oxy comprises an almost unperceivable, ultra-thin single-piece front frame from stainless steel without the conventional closing block. The arm pivots on a specially developed micro hinge. A further version has a registered “film hinge”; state-of-the-art in optics.
