LDStäel O5 Walnut

Lucas de Stäel

Paris based Lucas de Stäel recently launched his own eyewear collection – and swiftly won a Silmo d’Or for 2012. “Once Upon a Time” is the result of two years of intensive research and testing before unveiling the collection. De Stäel is fascinated with industrial processes, and his goal is to achieve a perfect balance between flexibility, lightness, classicism and purist. The frame above – in smooth polished walnut achieves those goals with its refined, graceful shape, and delicate details. JG
