Our City in Nature, Aarhus 3/4


In this third episode of the #OurAarhus series, we present to you:

Aarhus – a city in nature

Where modern architecture and classical design meets the breeze of the ocean and whispers from the woods.

Isbjerget, the Iceberg at newly etablished Aarhus Ø


Nature has always been a part of our existence. Even though we are creating more ways to move further away from it, nature continues to play a large part in our lives, and studies show that our health, wellbeing and creativity is highly dependent on our relationship to nature.

In this time of digitalisation, bringing nature back into our everyday lives seems more important than ever. That’s but one of the reasons why LINDBERG uses natural materials in our designs with utmost awe and respect.

 

LINDBERG træ+buffalo titanium


What we like to refer to as the smallest big city in the world, offers much more than world-class architecture and art. The natural surroundings are key to the city’s identity, and there are endless opportunities to get that really deep breath of fresh air.

Less than a mile away from the city’s centre, natural forests open up towards the bay and its small beach areas. Lakes, streams and marshland stretches west of the city, dividing it between northern and southern hillsides.

Every major establishment is beautified by surrounding parks and recreational areas bringing our everyday life closer to nature.

The story of LINDBERG acetanium

1805_acetanium_pic_1.jpg

In the pursuit of perfection, LINDBERG has worked with acetate eyewear frames for more than a decade, trying to solve the challenge we all know to be real: getting a personalised fit from a rigid material.

We don’t like to compromise with comfort, so while acetate frames have been around long before, we wanted to make sure that our design held true to our DNA: a perfectly fitted frame with all those ingenious adjustment options, that makes LINDBERG, LINDBERG.

By integrating our trademark material – flexible and strong titanium – with the lightest acetate, the distinctive acetanium collection was born.

The reinforcement of the nose bridge makes it possible to match any curvature of the lens, and elongates into the LINDBERG nose pads, which means these acetate frames won’t slide down your nose.



Titanium temples available in various lengths help hold the frame perfectly in place, and because of an advanced mounting technique, also allow non-visible adjustment of the temple inclination.

Just as titanium, acetate is a natural material composed by a concentration of more than 80% cotton fibers in a complex mix with wood pulp. This makes LINDBERG acetanium hypoallergenic and very skin-friendly.


Because of the texture and nature of acetate, it offers an incredible array of shapes and depth of colours, which come into their own when they are hand-finished in five polishing stages by our skilled craftsmen.

In recent years, the combination of acetate and titanium has entered several LINDBERG collections, and in our quest for innovation and improvement in terms of function, form and fashion, we are developing new synergetic connections between the two materials.

Step inside a LINDBERG universe

1804_id_top2.jpg

In our commitment to minimalist Danish design, we don’t stop at customisable eyewear.



Coming in to select your next favourite pair of glasses should leave an impression of luxury from beginning to end, which is why long ago, we decided to start designing and manufacturing our own interior solutions.

We believe that design, most fundamentally, is about making things better. Originating from an architect’s mindset, it was only a matter of time before the meticulous attention to detail emerged into the sphere of interiors.

The no-compromise attitude permeates LINDBERG in every aspect. As our CEO, Henrik Lindberg, always says:

 “If you want to do something, do it 100%. And do as much as possible yourself, so you can commit to every detail.”

Consequently, as LINDBERG developed, he quickly realised that using an external supplier for the customised solutions we wanted to create wasn’t viable, so instead of having a cabinet maker as a partner, we asked them to become our colleagues. 

The aesthetic perspective of LINDBERG interior design solutions is a commitment to materials on a level that matches our choices for materials used in our eyewear collections. Tactile materials such as solid oak and browned steel are key elements, along with various aluminum pieces, and glass and leather details.



We aim for the most natural, neutral, and nearly simplistic expression. That way, we make sure that the minimalist eyewear designs displayed, always stand out.

 

The final touch is decorative lighting, which, with a carefully chosen intensity, resembles natural daylight, to give you the best circumstances to check out the colour of your next LINDBERG specs.

Nothing is left to chance in our pursuit of quality, and this is just another example of how we will go to great lengths to keep all processes in-house – from design to development to manufacture. That’s our obsession with perfection.

Advanced LINDBERG technology is in the groove

1803_groovecolors_top.jpg


Customisation has always been a part of the LINDBERG DNA. Since the very beginning, we have focused on making eyewear that is as individual as the wearer, and groove colours are but one great example of how a unique LINDBERG look can be achieved.

Colouring the groove of the lens makes a big difference no matter what colour you go for, or which frame you choose.

LINDBERG 2197 col. 70 with and without GC92


The extremely light and invisible feel of a rimless frame becomes slightly more visible, and with the many new playful shapes added to our collection recently, the groove colour feature truly comes into its own.

 

 


LINDBERG 2334 col. 10/P80/GC86



No matter if the groove matches the temples, compliments the frame or acts as a contrast, it always adds that little something extra. Even going for the clear colour gives your eyewear a more polished finish and a softer integration between the frame and the lens, while choosing a neutral colour in a clear frame completely changes the perception of its features.

LINDBERG 9731 col. K228/10/GC7


Building on more than 20 years of experience, LINDBERG has developed a technique, which makes it possible for skilled opticians to lay the colour perfectly smooth in the groove. It requires a steady hand and a great feel for the material, to make sure the result is flawless.

 

 

The choice of colours and composition of the material have been finely adjusted through the years to give the best results. The palet of colours include metallic shades, which play well against our similar titanium options, and natural tones accentuating the complexion of the wearer.


 

 

LINDBERG 9729 col. K229/GT/GC69

 

Integrating this little extra something in your custom designed LINDBERGs, the combinations are virtually endless. So, what colour is your groove?

About the relationship between wearer and a LINDBERG frame, Voicer describes it as a secret code established in a shared understanding for how function meets the aesthetic.

"Only those who respect design, who pay great attention to detail and experience, will be excited ..."

Out of the many new styles introduced to the LINDBERG collection recently, Voicer particularly emphasises the models combining titanium and acetate with careful precision, ultra-fine, screwfree connections and subtle proportions.

Cubic colour combinations in the new LINDBERG campaign

1802_campaign_top.jpg


Our new visual merchandising campaign is now being launched at selected LINDBERG dealers across the globe.

Inspired by the art movement neo-plasticism, which dates back 100 years, we have designed a campaign with a classic LINDBERG touch. 


Altering the primary colours and using them in a variety of dimensions, the asymmetrical horizontal and vertical lines become apparent. The design allows ultimate customisation in the composition of elements, as each square is designed to connect with the others across their physical boundaries. A concept also recognised in our eyewear designs where any frame can be constructed with different components in different colours.


The combination of various geometric shapes that are just as characterised by what is not there; the gaps between them, resembles an effect also seen in the design of many of our newest models where cut-outs are a distinct feature. 

 


The result catches the eye at a distance as well as up close where details of different textures and materials appear.


Have you spotted the new LINDBERG campaign yet?

Our city, Aarhus 4/4: Dokk1

 

In times of change, it is fundamental to stay relevant. When what we do is no longer enough to stay in the game, we adapt, we move, we revolutionise. 

As our lives are increasingly digitalised, it became necessary to rethink our city library.

In this fourth and final episode of the #OurAarhus series, we present to you:

Dokk1: for the city, its people and the bay

As a place that unites all of those who seek knowledge and fellowship, the new city library also holds citizen’s services, public event facilities, study halls, playgrounds, and much more.



The importance of promoting a sense of a close community is manifested in one of the central art pieces, Gong. A 7,5 metres bronze bell, which only sounds when new parents activate it straight from the maternity ward at the city’s hospital.

At LINDBERG, we like to believe our eyewear also helps bring people together and bring out their creativity, by making eyewear that makes the wearer feel comfortable in spite of having to wear glasses. A frame so light and perfectly fitted you barely notice it, with a customised design that suits you - sleek, elegant, invisible - or colourful, playful and bold.

 

Bridging the gap between the bay and the city, “Dokk1” brings to mind what used to be the purpose of the area: docks for shipping, which is also resembled in the ship-like shape of the construction.

Below decks, Elmgreen & Dragset’s art installation Magic Mushrooms beautifully illustrates how Dokk1 is integrated in the city, and how it has upended the way we think of libraries.

Sketched by Aarhus-architects, Schmidt Hammer Lassen, the design of Dokk1 is far more futuristic than it is classic, nevertheless, it follows the minimalist traditions of Danish design. Constructed in sustainable and durable materials such as concrete, stainless steel, wood and glass, the expression is modern, minimal, raw, yet refined.

With this we finish the #OurAarhus series. We hope you enjoyed seeing Aarhus through LINDBERG-eyes.

Our colourful city, Aarhus #2/4: ARoS Art Museum

 

We believe seeing things in a different light is beneficial to creativity and good for the soul. What better way, than to view the city in full panorama through all the colours of the rainbow?

In this second episode of the #OurAarhus series, we present to you:

ARoS Aarhus Art Museum

Inaugurated in 2004 as Aarhus Art Musuem’s 4th location since 1859, ARoS is designed by world-renowned Aarhus architects, Schmidt Hammer Lassen.

On top of the immense quadratic construction, a floating rainbow skywalk acts as a beacon to people out and about in the city. Inviting visitors to see the city in any nuance imaginable, Your Rainbow Panorama presents us with a choice to make any day more colourful - just like the choice of endless colour options titanium gives to your LINDBERG frame.

 

LINDBERG strip titanium 9553, col. 127

 

 Ólafur Elíasson, the Danish-Icelandic artist behind Your Rainbow Panorama

 

Unlike the solid, yet simple red brick and glass exterior, the interior of the museum, with its bright white colours, allows light to be reflected through all ten levels of the construction. Sweeping round curves accentuate each storey, which are all connected by the softly inclining, spiralling staircase.

ARoS, the viking word for Aarhus, also alludes to the Latin word ars, which translates to art, thereby underscoring ARoS as a work of art inside out. Another great draw of the museum’s collection is Boy, a 4.5 metres tall glass fibre sculpture of a young, crouching boy. The remarkable attention to detail, such as the surface of the skin and the depth of the eyes almost brings the boy to life. if it wasn’t for the gargantuan proportions one could be led to think the boy was real.

Our city, Aarhus #1/4: City Hall, a timeless centrepiece in Danish architecture and design


Inspiration comes from many places, and our city is but one of many sources in our creative processes. Where you come from is deeply rooted in who you are, and we are proud to say that LINDBERG comes from Aarhus. A city of modern architecture with a classic touch.

In this first episode of the #OurAarhus series, we present to you:
Aarhus City Hall.

Conceived in 1937 by Danish design icons, architects Arne Jacobsen and Erik Møller, and furnished by the infamous Danish furniture designer, Hans J. Wegner, the City Hall of Aarhus is a true trademark of Danish design tradition and Aarhus as a city.

Marked for preservation in 1994, Aarhus City Hall is a timeless classic, inspired by quality, minimalism, aesthetics and functionality – just as we are at LINDBERG


Originally thought as an extremely minimalistic, unadorned concrete building with flat roofing, insistent requests from local politicians and the public to make the building more pompous, made the architects adapt the design. Roofs were elevated, the façade was beautified, and a 60-meter tower was added to the plan, resulting in City Hall as it stands today. A testimony to the origin of Danish design.

The exterior is clad with Norwegian marble and green verdigris copper, at times making the building blend in with the white skies and shades of bright blue and grey. Inside, herringbone parquet floors made of rare Danish marshland oak in combination with light beech walls and panels gives a luscious and luxurious impression, topped off with polished brass banisters.

 

The 60-meter tower includes a 43-piece carillon, which was recently renovated for the occasion of Aarhus European Capital of Culture 2017. Three times a day an ancient medieval melody chimes through the surrounding areas reminding passers-by of the city's understated, modernist hallmark.
