Double win at the Red Dot Award:Product Design 2023
The Red Dot Award jury is equally convinced by a model from the MINI EYEWEAR collection: the Oversized-Shape 741037 col. 50, which attracts all eyes and embodies MINIness to perfection. The trendy model emphasizes individual character by using retro elements. One striking feature is the CHILI RED colour scheme – the warm red is inspired by the MINI colour palette and expresses its radiance in this unmistakable shape, while the multi-layered acetate in colour-block optics creates a special effect. The eyewear design is rounded off by individually crafted stainless steel temples with built-in spring hinges, which offer the highest wearing comfort and add additional charm to the retro look.
Design for comfortand awarded twice
Two exceptional models from the current collection once again convinced the Red Dot Award jury of the design competence of our successful TITANFLEX brand.
Model 820900 is a premiere: the first combination of TITANFLEX and eye rims of synthetic material without metal reinforcement in the rims – made possible by the new high-tech PPSU polymer. Colours ranging from indigo blue, pine and neon orange to coriander perfect the design display.
Double lightness is the key to success for the rimless model 823018, as this design highlight leaves well-known paths and treads new technical solutions not only with the first double bridge made of Titanflex in a frameless model, but also with the curved bridge shape, which had to be newly developed for this material to ensure easy glazing despite the new structure to allow.
The simple but striking temples with a high-quality surface emphasize the delicate, light character of the front and round off the elegant, urban look of this concept.

Stylish double winFor MINI EYEWEAR
These two models from the current collection of the Eschenbach license brand MINI EYEWEAR were able to convince the jury of the Red Dot Awards 2021 and won an award each.
The feminine model 747020 col. 42 – a combination of acetate and stainless steel – with a high-set bridge, striking topline and wide hinges is a real eye-catcher. The front is a shade of sage combined with shiny silver metal. The crystal-coloured acetate temples display the unmistakable MINI pattern on the temple inlay. On the silver-mirrored nylon sun lenses, you can see the lasered MINI wing logo on the left lens, which is also found on the hand-polished round temple tips.
Model 743012 col. 60, from the current MINI EYEWEAR collection Spring/Summer 2021, convinces with numerous arguments. The oversized square shape made of acetate with a rivet design stands out thanks to the unique lamination on the front and the nylor on the lower edge of the frame. The acetate temples reveal the unmistakable MINI pattern on the temple inlay and underline the frame’s statement. The iconic MINI wing logo also adorns the characteristic round temple tips on this model.

Jos. Eschenbach receivestwo German Design Awards 2020
The German Design Council jury has selected two models from the Jos. Eschenbach collection as recipients of the German Design Award 2020. These awards underline the design expertise of the brand and its impeccable blend of design and function.
Jos. Eschenbach offers timelessly elegant eyewear, reimagining traditional design for the present day. Clean lines meet flawless function, with every model combining contemporary cool with vintage accents – the perfect composition of intricate craftsmanship and technical precision.
German Design Award winner model 981024 offers classical oval lenses in a stripped-back look. The lenses are framed by a striking brow line which transitions into minimalist, arching temples. The high-quality titanium nose pads carry a laser engraving of the company’s year of foundation: 1913.
Model 981578 has also been recognised with the German Design Award. This model delivers a modern interpretation of authentic heritage design, with the classic panto shape redefined in a mix of acetate and titanium. The acetate support hugs the back of the titanium frame, offering coloured nuances, while the temple tips and partly-enclosed geometric hinges perfectly reflect the restrained, uncluttered philosophy of the Jos. Eschenbach collection.
Award for high quality design;TITANFLEX und BRENDEL eyewear are awarded the Red Dot
The Red Dot jury has made its decision
After all submitted products had been individually tested and evaluated during the course of an assessment process lasting several days, the sunglasses models TITANFLEX 824099 col. 10 and BRENDEL eyewear 906125 col. 50 have been awarded the “Red Dot” accolade. The expert committee only awards this internationally recognised mark of quality to products which impress with their quality of design.
TITANFLEX – technology meets design
The modern, ultra-slim, futuristic design and the unusual combination of HD acetate with flexible and tough TITANFLEX, as well as a memory metal alloy patented by Eschenbach Optik set new standards in design and quality.
BRENDEL eyewear – design is timeless
Model 906125 col. 50 is an interpretation of the legendary women’s acetate sunglasses in the Jackie Onassis style from the 1960s. The large front with a slight cat eye shape on the outer line can’t fail to impress with soft edges and opaque, translucent colours. This design concept places the focus firmly on the highly effective design of front.
