The history of Lunor glasses for men and women
Founded over 30 years ago in Germany, Lunor states that it has deeply rooted connections with the Black Forest, a mountainous region in southwestern Germany that borders France and is renowned for fairy tales and cuckoo clocks. It is a small family business owned by Gernot Linder who is acclaimed for his obsession with hands-on artistry.
Lunor is an independent eyewear brand that actually makes each pair of glasses for women and men by hand. The one-of-a-kind designs are crafted from the finest materials, including surgical stainless steel, titanium, acetates and even buffalo horn. To maintain their upscale styles, Lunor women’s and men’s glasses are available plated in gold, platinum and silver.
According to the company and many eyewear specialists, the manufacturing process is extremely complex because Lunor glasses and sunglasses are not mass-produced using machines.
Manufacturing a single pair of glasses for men or women takes 200 steps and up to eight weeks of work by a team of 20 highly skilled craftspeople. All of Lunor’s glasses are handmade in Germany, except for its titanium frames, which come alive under the expert hands of Japanese artisans with a keen knowledge of the lustrous transition metal.
Furthermore, all materials and components are exclusively curated for Lunor glasses, which adds a touch of unicity discerning customers seek.
Lunor’s commitment to sustainability spans the entire company. In fact, the company was the first in the eyewear industry to own a zero-energy building and became 100% carbon-neutral in 2018.
