The eyewear that thinks big

REALLY BIG

De Stijl eyewear is a collection of sophisticated and technological eyewear, its large sizes fit men with wider faces

Out of the range eyewear


De Stijl’s collection of eyewear follows in the footsteps of the artists that stood at the origins of this movement. Each model’s basic design is a search for harmony through the use of lines and right angles and for the balance between the colours underlining the composition. The various elements are combined into an architectural entirety without the use of screws or welding by the hinge, which is the real masterpiece within each frame.

COLLECTION

Laser soldering


All De Stijl eyewear is designed to use a minimum of soldering. The soldering that is done is by laser soldering. An automatic laser beam melts the two parts together without additive material. This technique is more durable and stronger than traditional methods and allows precise soldering in tiny areas.

Patented hinge


95% of De Stijl eyewear makes use of the patented iconic De Stijl eyewear screwless hinge. There are three main components, the spring, the iconic De Stijl eyewear square and the temple. Combined they show a sophisticated, transparent, spring hinge.

Ion plating


Most of the standard De Stijl eyewear frames are plated with the Ion Plating (IP) method. Ion plating is one of the most advanced surface finishing processes in the trade and ensures an extremely durable colour layer. By bombarding the vaporized paint particles with electrons (plasma) a magnetic field occurs that attaches it firmly to the stainless steel material in a vacuum environment… in short, it is the best there is and it will never come off.

The art movement


De Stijl is a journey through time, a fusion of the first steps of modern art and contemporary industrial design. It is an homage to the Dutch visionaries from the last century.

The art movement


The De Stijl movement posited the fundamental principle of geometrical shapes combined with a strong asymmetricality and the predominant use of pure primary colors.
DeStijl is a Dutch art movement named after De Stijl magazine. This magazine was a project run by artist and publicist Theo van Doesburg in 1914.
In 1924 Theo van Doesburg published the manifest “Working Towards Visual Architecture”. This manifest concluded that neoplastic architecture should be elementary, economic, functional, formless, non-monumental and dynamic.

Avant-garde minimalism


Gerrit Rietveld, who later became a well-known architect, joined the De Stijl movement in 1919. During his time in the DeStijl movement, Rietveld designed the famous Rietveld-Schröder house in Utrecht. This house seemed to have become a tangible manifest for De Stijl architecture.

Composition with Large Red Plane, Yellow, Black, Gray, and Blue

This composition fom 1921 is asymmetrical, as in all of his mature paintings, with one large dominant block of color, here red, balanced by distribution of the smaller blocks of yellow, blue gray, and white around it. This style has been quoted by many artists and designers in all aspects of culture since the 1920s.

Red and blue chair

The Red and Blue Chair is a chair designed in 1917-1923 by Gerrit Rietveld. It represents one of the first explorations by the De Stijl art movement in three dimensions.

Model Peter, special edition

The model Peter was designed for the second eyewear collection in 2010. The typical square lenses are floating behind a thin and geometrical frame. This frame in primary colors was part of the Mondrian limited edition.

De Stijl Side Table

This versatile side table was one of Eileen Gray's favourite pieces and stood in her living room up to the time of her death. In 1922 she showed it in Amsterdam at an exhibition of French art.

Counter-Composition in dissonance 16

This geometrically abstract painting from 1925 is one of the most famous work from van Doesburg. It consists of rectangles outlined in black and titled at 45-degree angles relative to the edges of the canvas. The shapes are smoothly filled in with different tones of red, blue, yellow, gray, and white

Berlin chair

The Berlin chair gets its name because it was specially designed for the exposition room by Rietveld and Huszar in the show in Berlin in 1923. This chair, which later was frequently referred to as 'the plank chair', was executed with a mirror image twin.

Model Theo, special edition

The model Theo is an acetate frame designed by J in 2010. The metal grid structure is embeded into the plastic temple and reminds the graphic design work of Mondrian painting.

Wendingen carpet

Eileen Gray had her own studio where rugs were produced according to her designs Wendingen is a tribute to the Dutch architectural journal that made Eileen Gray famous.

Hanging lamp

Gerrit Rietveld designed its hanging lamp in 1920. It was made of three lighting tubes -manufactured by the Dutch company Philips- organized vertically and horizontally creating a three-dimensional hanging light sculpture.

Inspired by masters

It is clear that the 'constructions in Space-Time' of Théo van Doesburg from the 1920's were at the origins of the inspiration of the first De stijl eyewear collection. The design of the patented hinge is based on a similar assembling of three dimensional geometrical shapes.

van Doesburg

After courses of dramatic art, Theo van Doesburg decides in 1902 to dedicate himself to the writing, then to the painting as self-taught. It is after the war that he will be part of the European avant-garde. Then he creates the magazine De Stijl and the artistic movement bearing the same name with the painter Piet Mondriaan.

Gray

Eileen Gray is an Irish architect, artist and designer. In 1913 she first showed work at the Salon des Artistes Décorateurs. In the 1920s, Eileen Gray came into contact with the Dutch avant-garde group De Stijl and their abstract geometric works.Eileen Gray's own work was strongly influenced by contemporary architecture and she began to design stringently functional furniture.

Mondrian

Dutch painter Piet Mondrian began his career firmly rooted in the representational form, favoring naturalistic and impressionistic landscapes. His style was influenced by Picasso and Braque as it morphed into his signature non-representational form which he termed Neo-Plasticism. It was through this form that he became an important contributor to the De Stijl art movement.

J

J has a different and interesting profile, having graduated from a Mechanical Engineering school in France and also as a graduate from a well-known Design institute in Switzerland. This allows J to create high-end technical products with a global approach. He started working in the optical industry in 1998.

Rietveld

Rietveld is a Dutch architect. He joined the De Stijl art movement in 1019. That is where he met Piet Mondrian. He designed his first building, the Schröder house, in 1924, in Utrecht. The design of the house is radically geometrical but based on a strong asymmetry. In the 1920s, Rietveld creates several furniture according to the principle of surface nesting.

Natural design

The elementary stitch of the iron crystal is cubic. It is the same iron which is used in the alloys of stainless steels used for the realization of the De Stijl eyewear.


Pyrite crystal
The geometrical , the research for the harmony by the use of straight line continued long after the end of the movement and still continues.


De Steltman chair - Gerrit Rietveld
The cube as the three-dimensional symbol of this collection stays an inexhaustible source of inspiration in the architecture and the radical industrial design today.
