Silhouette Honored With Red Dot Award for New Accent Rings Collection


LINZ, Austria—Silhouette has been honored with the Red Dot Award for product design for its new Accent Rings collection. This is the ninth time that Titan Minimal Art; The Icon. Eyewear had won the prize. This most recent winning collection features lenses adorned with sleek SPX rings as frames. The Accent Rings collection claimed its Red Dot at the Design Museum in Essen on July 9. That evening, during the Red Dot Gala at Essen’s opera house, the Aalto Theatre, Silhouette celebrated along with 1,200 guests from around the world, including design stars, journalists, business experts and politicians, as well as the winners from the other product categories.

The Accent Rings collection showcases a hybrid design that is neither a true rimless style nor a classic full-rim frame. According to the company, the collection received acclaim for its combinations of titanium and array of Accent Ring colors. “With the colors and shapes, we have created subtle contrasts that produce an interplay of glossy and matte surfaces. This highlight collection features trendy combinations like brass with petrol or rose gold and amethyst,” said Roland Keplinger, head of design for Silhouette.
