In 1983 Danish optician Poul-Jørn Lindberg collaborated with architect Hans Dissing to solve a design problem. The result was the AIR Titanium, lightweight minimal eyewear without screws, welds or rivets. The first models were created in a 3 room flat above Lindberg’s optical shop in Aarhus, Denmark.
Today, LINDBERG is considered as the ultimate eyewear design brand in the international eyewear industry. LINDBERG has received more international design awards than any other eyewear brand. In 2009 Lindberg was granted a warrant of appointment to the Royal Danish Court, and in 2011 Poul-Jørn Lindberg is made a knight.
In addition to the AIR Titanium brand, Lindberg designs and manufacturers a number of other lines including: Air Titanium RIM, 1000 Spirit, 7000/9500 Strip, 2000 Acetanium, 3000 X, and the newest addition to the collection: “n.o.w.”. Lindberg also makes sunglasses and an exclusive collection for kids and teens.
LINDBERG uses many different materials, e.g. titanium, acetate, gold, platinum, diamonds, buffalo horn etc. These exciting materials are designed and processed through innovative design and production processes combined with excellent craftsmanship. The result is a product of outstanding quality.
Irrespective of their different appearance, all LINDBERG eyewear include the following design elements: Scandinavian, minimalist design ; extreme lightness ; individual adjustability of bridge and temples ; unique design details; patented hinges without screws ; a wealth of unique colors and color combinations ; endless number of shapes, sizes and features .
