glasses are my life, my love and my passion. it doesn’t matter if they’re made from steel, titanium or horn, i love decorating myself with glasses. i feel naked and incomplete if i don’t have a frame on my nose and i realized pretty early on that this was the industry i wanted to work in. no, needed to work in. even though i had chosen a path of academia and cultural studies, destiny steered me into the safe harbor of sheetmetalglassesology. being able to design a collection of titanium frames for onono brings another chapter of my life full circle. i look back on those wonderful hours working on the collection with equal parts joy and thanks, and i look forward to having these frames on my nose and guiding them through the world.

Trained jeweller. Industrial design graduate. Bernhard Schwazbauer designs to create products that are simple and self-explanatory. To break through boundaries: boundaries of material, of technology, of decision-makers. With 20 years experience in the world of eyewear and a never-ending joy in all things glasses. With the knowledge that there will always be another frame; the next one will be even better.
No degree in design, no experience in eyewear. Just excitement and natural talent. And intuition. The greatest influences in Julius’ design are working with, and learning from, great people. Design simple. Create good feelings and timeless designs. This is Julius Iversen’s design philosophy.
