Pure Design in the most Original Form

A completely new look in no time at all…

In contrast to conventional replacement systems for temples, Rodenstock completely skips screws and hinges in its latest development. Model R8010 offers the wearer a completely different style of spectacle, depending on how the replaceable temples are combined with the purist front.

Model R8010 from Rodenstock revolutionises the conventional temple replacement system - and sets standards with exquisite materials. Introducing a patented temple replacement system that works completely without hinges and screws for the first time, Rodenstock has done the splits between perfect technological execution and a state of the art design.

The front of Rodenstock R8010 consists of high-performance polyamide, with a choice of three different materials for the sides that emphasise the purist ‘raw’ character of the spectacles. Beech wood provides a warm touch. Horn refines any outfit, and aluminium provides a technical, cool look. Hence, spectacles become a unique fashion piece that has never been more individual.

Rodenstock R8010 will be available from selected opticians from September 2015 in an exclusive felt case, containing the front frame and two pairs of temples. RRP £294.
