THE HAND, THE LOOK, THE VISION
Unrepeatable in their uniqueness, these glasses are the product of a man’s glance. A man who, after a day’s work in his workshop, turns his head towards the scrap bin of the day’s produced frames, and sees a kaleidoscopic mix of colours randomly scattered in endless combinations. Just a moment is enough to unleash creativity, and just a glance to imagine something great: bringing a dream to life.
Callous hands, working and experimenting hands, skilled hands of that pristine craftsmanship typical of people who have been working for years with passion and devotion, shaping materials of countless colours, from crystal to havana, from carmine to emerald green, trying to recreate the effect the scraps evoked.
The contrast between dreams and reality led to years characterized by seeming defeat and apparently unsurmountable obstacles, abandoning projects, limiting production and experiments. But that glance eventually came into focus and the vision was crystal clear.
This magic has a name: ULTRA LIMITED.
IN 3 WORDS
Uniqueness is the characteristic of being one and only: you will never find an exact copy of a pair of ULTRA LIMITED glasses.
By assembling 12 different shades, each pair of glasses is the ultimate expression of colour, with tone-on-tone technique and the exaggeration of contrasts.
Each pair of glasses is hand-manufactured in Italy by artisans with decades-long experience.
Number 1 is the most representative model of the ULTRA LIMITED brand: each pair of glasses is a unique piece, unrepeatable in its combination of colours. What seemed impossible has become reality thanks to efforts and devotion. We have abandoned the stereotyped logic of series production and started producing a unique piece, always different and with its own personality.
different shades of colour used in the workshop and selected on a six-monthly basis. Cellulose is cut into sheets of 0.5 – 1 cm thickness that will be glued together with 3 different types of adhesive, depending on the raw material composition.
days to produce one pair of glasses. After cutting and gluing, the semi-finished product is aged for 12 days under a press weighing 300 kg; finally, the raw piece undergoes continuous temperature variations for 14 days to prevent bubbles and eliminate criticalities. From then on frames are ready to go through the traditional production process.
Each frame is made up of 8 to 12 different shades, totalling 3 trilliards of possible colour combinations.
HAND MADE IN ITALY
Cellulose acetate is the raw material used. It is a biopolymer obtained from cotton and wood, with a history of over a century.
Frames pass through the skilful hands of artisans from the Cadore mountain area, sole experts able to shape such a complicated and original product. The Belluno district has always been the core and inspiration for high-quality, artisan-like eyewear products.
Each frame is laser-printed with a progressive serial number, a guarantee of authenticity and uniqueness of the product.
The final touch is for the person wearing the product: the frame is customized with a name, a signature, a symbol …taking a step beyond uniqueness.
