Founded in 1997 by friends Henrik Ørgreen, Tobias Wandrup, and Gregers Fastrup, Ørgreen Optics is Danish design at its best. The values and standards set by internationally acclaimed designers such as Arne Jacobsen and Louis Poulsen – innovation, quality, minimalism, and clean lines – are found in every frame – yet with an Ørgreen twist; inspired by street culture, extreme sports and classic cars. Striving to master color in the eyewear design world, Ørgreen’s full-time Color Designer, Sahra Lysell’s vision is carried out at some of the world’s leading colour labs in Japan, with a colouring process that consists of more than 15 individual steps. The different hues – over 400 – are exquisitely composed in an array of opposites, from strong to fragile, intense to tranquil, raw to refined, sweet to serious and audacious to understated. Ørgreen’s success not only derives from color, but it is also the result of a long journey of persistence and hard work to develop superior designer eyewear. Ørgreen eyewear is designed in Denmark and made by hand in Japan, known and respected for impeccable standards and quality. Individually crafted with more than 100 processes, each frame can take up to six months to achieve its penchant for perfection.
