What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

You may have missed the launch of Lunithe. Our innovative frames emerged a little more than a year ago. Following the success of our previous campaign, we are pleased to introduce you to our new collection and its improvements.

Rigel 1 - 2018 - Steel Matte Grey
Rigel 1 - 2018 - Steel Matte Grey

 The Lunithe is thoughtfully designed in accordance to strict criterias. Style meets Function, creating a NEO VINTAGE eyeframe with touches of old-school and modern functional shapes.

 ADVICE 

We can help you choose your shapes (using photomontage). Send us your picture at : contact@lunithe.com (full-face portrait ratio)

 Taking Nature as a model, for its perfect balance between efficiency and energy saving, LUNITHE finds its inspiration in the structure of a tree-leaf, light and flexible thanks to its veined anatomy.

No screws or other small parts likely to be lost. Age-old technique, used in carpentry and in antique architectures.

Rigel 4 - A delicate model, an alternative to the pierced glass spectacles. Higher nose-bridge, a nod to old pince-nez glasses.

Rigel 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 - 2018

 Dirakh 5 - A timeless model classic and elegant, with twisted tenon-joints.

Altaïr 2 - A retro model Neo Retro look, with a touch of the old-school style of the past acetate eye-frame rivets.

MATERIALS STAINLESS STEEL + silicone comfort parts

Stainless steel sheet from 0.3 to 0.8 mm thick

No need to overstate things, the product speaks for itself. 

The shapes of the new collection were designed by Guillaume and Jeanne. The detailed technical drawings were made by Guillaume, in charge of all the technological and engineering aspects of the product.

Lunithe is an industrial-handmade product that uses both industrial engraving and cutting techniques, as well as in-house forming and hand finishing.


 THE STORY 

Creative siblings, concerned with the crafting of high-end and well-designed products. Guillaume, the brother, is an engineer-designer. His industrial design studies, has brought him to perfect his skills at a Parisian based eyewear-design company, paving the way to an innovative patent deposit and bringing his ideas to life. Jeanne, the sister, is artistically trained. She’s exploring fashion with a poetic subtleness, through design and styling.

All the shapes are mounted with high-end solar lenses and set with an eyeglass case , a cleaning microfiber cloth , and a plier to change the lenses.


 CORRECTED LENSES IN OPTION WORKSHOP RATE

You can order corrective lenses according to your correction with your frame. We need your prescription and your pupil distance (PD) Please add the corresponding price to your payment.

We are not opticians but eyewear creators, this service is outsourced to a workshop which works with high-standing Swiss lenses.

In recent years, while taking time to think, create and prepare their success story, Guillaume and Jeanne have built a solid foundation for a rapid and sustainable development.

          

Risks and challenges

We learned a lot from our first crowdfunding campaign.
Today, our process is well established. According to your tastes, your remarks and the opticians', we improved our products.

We expect a longer delivery time for you to be satisfied and receive your frame this summer.
