CREATING, CURATING & CARING FOR THE WORLD’S FINEST EYEWEAR
“The combination of different but precious materials is the focus of our research, therefore the materials used and the manufacturing processes for our collections are incomparable to no one on the market.” – Pugnale & Nyleve
system-two – dita
Melding decorative styles spanning from antiquity to modernity, SYSTEM-TWO evokes the tatara ironworking method that allowed early Japanese blacksmiths to forge elaborate creations from clay blast ovens. This artisanal legacy flourished anew in the early 20th century, when modernist architects began to incorporate Japanese craftwork into structures and furnishings around the world. This decorative arts revival influenced the frame’s industrial proportions, as well as its etched temples and intricately sculpted end-pieces.
i like it well-done!
Unlike brands that commercially process massive quantities of acetate frames as quickly and cheaply as possible, we prefer to slowly tumble our acetate frames in genuine, hand-cut bamboo chips of varying shapes and sizes. In addition to utilizing a renewable resource, our traditional bamboo polishing process results in a deeper, richer, higher quality finish that you’ll immediately see and feel the moment you hold a DITA frame in your hands.
