The new MONOCEROS case is handcrafted in
Austria - Tyrol and mainly focuses on
simplicity and space optimization. The case
is produced in eucalyptus wood only and
without any metal or plastic parts. Its
simple closing mechanism gives the item a
special and unique look and each single
frame a perfect and safe home. In times of
mass production, cheap manufacturing and low-
cost suppliers the Tyrolean manufactory
emphasizes on traditional values,
sustainability and environment protection.
These ideas and features paired with the
ergonomic shape and modern design give the
case its true character.

ROLF‘s high-quality, extremely light wood, stone and horn eyewear are handmade. A main focus of the company is to set design trends and realize new ideas. The in-house research and development department invented a new type of wooden eyeglasses and a special glazing system for rigid materials. ROLF glasses come without screws and metal, are maintenance-free and are ideally suited for allergy sufferers. Since 2009, ROLF Spectacles has been a pioneer in creating natural eyewear. ROLF invented the flexible FLEXLOCK hinge technology in 2017 and was awarded with the Silmo d'Or award.
