The two companies have shared values aimed at creating a product that exudes comfort, aesthetics, high quality and, above all keeping the care of their followers in mind.
There are over 100 steps to manufacture a single frame. Germano Gambini exclusively use Italian metal and Mazzucchelli acetate. the industry best in acetate, are combined with craftmanship techniques including
tumbling and finishing up to the ennobling of the metal enamelling, and
the application of precious details for limted edition frames.
All of this attention to detail and care makes Germano Gambini a genuinely certified "Made in Italy" business.
The first collection Germano Gambini produced in the 1970s is called “i LEGGERI”, which is translated as 'the light’. The concept was born from the pencil of Germano Gambini with the aim to create a pair of glasses that do not fall on your face, but that would benefit their unique facial features: simple lines, essential, original shapes, bright colors.
It’s their most popular and widespread collection, born from the vision of making glasses that are comfortable to wear, while highlighting the unique features of a person's face. They are the first “light weight frames” weight only 8 grams, and come in a range of colors and shapes that are extraordinarily attractive. Today the collection presents models for women, men and unisex, from eyeglasses to sunglasses, with new forms and colors including classic designs that are always being updated and reinterpreted.
Today the 'i LEGGERI' collection consists of a range of acetate and a new contemporary metal line called 'Light Metal – ILEGGERI'. These frames are composed of stainless steel, lightweight, thin, modern contemporary and comfortable to wear. The use of stainless steel reflects highest level of quality while being comfortable to wear.
