In 1993, LINDBERG introduced the revolutionary Air Titanium Rim collection. These frames feature a hypoallergenic titanium alloy that lends an unprecedented amount of flexibility to the design, which is further enhanced by a unique spiral hinge with no screws or soldering.
After the titanium alloy is formed, it is stretched and straightened by machine, creating a specific wire thickness. Titanium, while it is very light, is immensely strong, so Air Rim frames are special in that the wire is only one millimeter thick! All the frames are then assembled and adjusted by hand and lenses are grooved to allow the frame to sit inside the edge.
In order to create a wide variety colors in both matte and shiny finishes, the titanium is exposed to a specific number of volts. This electrolytic process, called anodization, “pulls” the color out of the metal itself and cannot be scratched away. Some specialty colors, such as red and orange, are painted onto the wire.
LINDBERG Air Titanium Rim frames are available in a variety of shapes for both men and women. Pictured below are the Glenn frames for women which are exceptionally light and fashionable round frames:

In the case of Danish eyewear master and designer Paul-Jorn Lindberg, inspiration was born of exasperation – namely, exasperation at the fact that the eyeglass frames in LINDBERG’s very own shop held little appeal for him. First came his groundbreaking LINDBERG Air Titanium (the predecessor of the LINDBERG Spirit Titanium) rimless frames, which have stayed on the radar for almost 30 years. Then came LINDBERG’s innovation: LINDBERG Rim Titanium eyeglass frames, sleek super lightweight full-rim frames without any screws. These are the favorite of executives, politicians and royalty alike.
Just as in the original LINDBERG rimless eyeglass frames, everything superfluous – welding, screws, and rivets – has been eliminated from LINDBERG Rim Titanium glasses, leaving behind only what is necessary for absolute comfort and superior style. These are frames that have been reduced to the bare essentials while maintaining their innate magnificence of design. It’s not at all surprising that LINDBERG Rim Titanium glasses are the glasses for anyone who wants to project a calculated image – the eyes reveal what they want to reveal while the super slim titanium rims add just the tiniest touch of mystery.
As far as looks go, LINDBERG Rim Titanium glasses take Danish minimalism to a whole new level with incredible design finesse and true aesthetic innovation. Their simple elegance belies strength and flexibility that demonstrates that, yes, less can be more and beauty can be strong.
