There are great advantages to titanium as a material for eyeglass frames: The material is hypoallergenic and super-light. However, the material is also challenging when it comes to production. Titanium is very soft and must be reinforced to meet the high demands of a pair of Gotti glasses.
Spin&Stow, with the integrated 360° rotating mechanism provides total freedom of movement. Just give them a twist and the sunglasses can be folded flat and stowed anywhere to save space: On the road, at home, in your jacket pocket or in bags. The Gotti Spin&Stow innovation is patented and has been distinguished with multiple awards (German Design Award, IF Product Design Award, red dot Design Award and V. Award Technology HK)
Acetate is light, durable and flexible. It is a fascinating and unending game with colors. It all happens when different colors and various thin acetate sheets are layered over each other.
Layered acetate that has been stretched in all directions creates surprising patterns. The effect is similar to looking through a kaleidoscope. Acetate is a perfectly suited material with an infinite number of possible combinations. The aim is clear: the color and design should appear harmonically on the face and cleverly underline the character features.
A total of 200 to 250 steps are needed to complete the production of a pair of acetate eyeglasses. Finally, the frames are polished with rotating buffing wheels made of cotton, yarn, wool or leather operated by talented, experienced hands.
This brilliant polishing is a signature feature of Götti eyewear, requiring a process that is comparable to the polishing of a diamond: Only through proper polishing can the desired colors and facets come to light.
