Born from an oversized classic optical frame from the 40’s film noir era the second in the Insider series keeps within the original character of the first but with a futuristic twist. Inspired by the neo-futuristic concept artists of the 50s and 60s, we created a new silhouette that is designed to be lighter and more durable than the original Insider. Engineered with an innovative new frame technique that creates blade-thin profile geometries, the entire frame is rendered in a groundbreaking stainless steel core lamination process, which is 50% thinner than traditional acetate and is more than twice as strong. This architectural design creates a unique contrast of volume and lightness evolving the Insider legacy. Due to the level of R&D and technical acuity involved in manufacture, the stainless steel core lamination process takes three times as long to produce than the original Insider. Because of the high demands imposed by the lamination process only limited facilities in Japan have perfected the technique.
