onono titan cultivates a deep connection to its origin in "onono the very few" — all while maintaining a contrary point of view. onono the very few is timeless, perennial. inseparable from ralph anderl. his face is the constant: it always remains. a new designer. new glasses. 49 collections of 6 horn- and 6 metal-rimmed glasses in 49 years.
onono titan is timeless, but it never stays the same. the collection evolves, but it never ages. it is created by different designers. some frame models are replaced. others are added. a collection in relentless pursuit of perfection. never more than 50 models with 50 systematic names:
that is onono titan.
every pair of onono titan frames stands for consummate form and quality.
onono titan. the name stands for exceptional craftsmanship and design. the venue: berlin’s backfabrik. prototyping, manufacturing, marketing, it all happens on location. made in berlin — with its own dedicated production. a collection designed to surpass the highest standards. its principle material: titanium: feather light, flexible, and corrosion resistant — not to mention pvd-coated. a pair of glasses as quickly taken apart as put back together again. onono titan brings the ic! berlin's patented, screwless hinge system to its fullest design expression. 3D printed clips make it possible, the gentlest movement of the temple pieces you can imagine.
50 models. 50 names. a naming system with strict rules reminiscent of the periodic table of elements: the material (T for titanium) and size is followed by the corresponding year of market introduction and, finally, the level of the base curve.
the collection is divided into three sizes — small, medium, and large. at any given time, there are a maximum of 15 models in S (< 1-15), 20 models in M (< 16-35) and 15 models in L (< 36-50). In practice, the names look like this example: model T1 15 6, a onono titan model, size S, introduced in 2015 with a base curve 6.
the only exception to the naming system: werner aisslinger’s collection 0.
