The hallmark of the first KOBERG collections is the cylindrical, screwless hinge by Josef Lanta. Designed specifically for the KOBERG collection, the matching temple design gives the frames their specific character.
A second design line from Studio Spektakel translates the cylindrical hinge into a narrower shape that enables more delicate temple shapes.
For the current Titan collection, the hinge design was revised again and given a flat shape. The aim of each design stage was always to integrate the specific material properties into the frame design in the best possible way.
The KOBERG collection is essentially produced and painted by DEOMA AG in Gerlingen in Baden-Württemberg.
Alessandro Picicci and his team do everything they can to produce high-quality eyeglass frames. Together we use components from Germany, Switzerland, Italy and South Korea - depending on where we find the best quality.
The final assembly of the frames and packaging now takes place at the "K&T Brillenbau" in Münster.
KOBERG glasses should meet the highest quality standards. We therefore prefer to invest in high-quality components rather than in fashion brand licenses. Because every handcrafted glass is a combination of frames and lenses, it is custom-made and not an off-the-shelf product.
KOBERG frames are made of stainless steel, titanium or acetate and painted by hand in multiple colors.
We always look for the highest quality components for our frames - from the raw material to the smallest screw.
Wherever possible, we always choose a sustainable option. For example, KOBERG frames are packed in linen bags and have a case made of cardboard instead of plastic.
The supply chain for a KOBERG version is short and clear. Everyone who works on it does so under the best possible working conditions and always receives a fair wage for his work.
